These tests also specify the required contact time for the product to be effective
In Europe a series of lab tests are run to assess the efficacy of products on bacteria, fungi and viruses
Usually there are two type of tests: suspension (in a solution) and surface tests. These are then performed on different strains
Contact time might vary depending if the test is performed in clean or dirty (presence of soil) conditions
In some cases, virucidal efficacy can be limited to certain type of virus only (eg. only to Influenza).
Always refer to the label of your chosen biocidal product to understand efficacy and required contact time
