Infection causing pathogens indentified by Robert Koch-Institute

Which pathogens play a major role in causing infection? Just recently, the Robert Koch-Institute prepared a list of 127 pathogens by ranking them in terms of frequency, spread and burden of disease.  

The Bode Science Centre has taken this prioritisation into consideration and has extended its search tool by bacteria, viruses and fungi accordingly. (See Link). In the list, you will find both the clinically relevant pathogens and the spectrum of effect necessary for disinfectants to inactivate them.

The A-to-Z database includes compact background information on each pathogen: its family, the prevalence, most common infections triggered by it, and, where appropriate, its resistance pattern.

A disinfection procedure’s necessary spectrum of effect is normally determined by the pathogen (e.g. Coxsackievirus). In case you have no data available on the pathogen concerned, this page will serve as guide: For your convenience, the overview also includes the spectrum of activity necessary for disinfectants to kill the respective microorganism (e.g. virucidal for Coxsackiviruses).

If you have any queries please call your local Bode/Sterillium hospital representative or call PEI at +353 1 419 6900.
