Introduction

Alcohols, usually ethanol or isopropanol, are sometimes used as a disinfectant. Like many disinfectants, alcohols are generally considered to be non-specific antimicrobials because of their many toxic effects. Alcohols cause cell proteins to clump and lose their function. Specifically, the cell membranes lose their structure and collapse, thereby killing it. In general alcohols can be used in antibacterial and bactericidal products against escherichia coli, staphylococcus aureus, pseudomonas aeruginosa, candida albicans.

Test Contents

Chemists from Alfa Chemistry have a great deal of experience in the applications and tests of low molecular weight alcohols. Our experienced chemists are pleased to work with you to solve your problems in scientific research and industrial applications. We provide testing services include but not limited to:

Antibacterial and bactericidal test- escherichia coli

Escherichia coli (E. coli) is a Gram-negative, facultative anaerobic, rod-shaped, coliform bacterium of the genus Escherichia that is normally live in the intestines of healthy people and animals. Most types of E. coli are harmless or cause relatively brief diarrhea. But a few strains, such as E. coli O157:H7, can cause severe stomach cramps, bloody diarrhea and vomiting.

Alfa Chemistry offers tests of alcohol fungicides in the antibacterial and bactericidal against escherichia coli.

Antibacterial and bactericidal test- staphylococcus aureus

Staphylococcus aureus is a Gram-positive, round-shaped bacterium, a member of the Firmicutes, and is a usual member of the microbiota of the body that causes a wide variety of clinical diseases.

Alfa Chemistry offers tests of alcohol fungicides in the antibacterial and bactericidal against staphylococcus aureus.

Antibacterial and bactericidal test- pseudomonas aeruginosa

Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a Gram-negative, aerobic rod bacterium of the pseudomonadaceae family which has a pearlescent appearance and grape-like or tortilla-like odor. Pseudomonas aeruginosa can cause disease in plants and animals, including humans.

Alfa Chemistry offers tests of alcohol fungicides in the antibacterial and bactericidal against pseudomonas aeruginosa.

Antibacterial and bactericidal test- candida albicans

Candida albicans is an opportunistic pathogenic yeast that is a common member of the human gut flora. Candida albicans is a ubiquitous polymorphic species and the most common opportunistic pathogen, mainly in people with impaired immune system.

Alfa Chemistry offers tests of alcohol fungicides in the antibacterial and bactericidal against candida albicans.
