Antimicrobial
Solutions

The commitment of Sutter Professional consists of proposing solutions aimed at inhibiting the effects caused by microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi and viruses, with the aim of safeguarding people’s health

Transmission of microorganisms can take place:
1. By air (through dust or droplets)
2. By direct contact (contact between body surfaces)
3. By indirect contact (through contaminated objects or surfaces that act as an intermediary)

In order to eradicate the risk of transmission of microorganisms, the use of surface products that have passed the following EN standards is required:

EN 1276 (including EN 1040)
Chemical disinfectants and antiseptics - Quantitative test in suspension for evaluation of the bactericidal activity of chemical disinfectants and antiseptics used in the food, industrial, domestic and collectivity sectors
EN 1650
Chemical disinfectants and antiseptics - Quantitative test in suspension for evaluation of the fungicide activity of chemical disinfectants and antiseptics used in the food, industrial, domestic and collectivity sectors
EN 13697
Chemical disinfectants and antiseptics - Quantitative test on non-porous surface for evaluation of the bactericidal and/or fungicide activity of chemical disinfectants and antiseptics used in the food, industrial, domestic and collectivity sectors
EN 1276
Chemical disinfectants and antiseptics - Quantitative test in suspension for evaluation of the bactericidal activity of chemical disinfectants and antiseptics used in the food, industrial, domestic and collectivity sectors
EN 1499
Chemical disinfectants and antiseptics - Hand sanitising
For details on the list of EN standards passed by Sutter Professional products and the related efficacy conditions (dosage, dilution, contact time), please refer to the technical documentation of each product. For information needs please contact: regulatory.affairs@sutter.it
Bacteria

LEGIONELLA PNEUMOPHILA

Legionella pneumophila is a bacterium belonging to the Legionellaceae family, a genus of intracellular parasites particularly common in nature, especially in the vicinity of water. Legionella, in fact, has the possibility to proliferate in components, ducts or plant fittings where water flows or stagnates. For this reason it can colonise water pipes and air conditioners where it reproduces more quickly.

The bacterium can therefore enter the human body through the respiration of water droplets in which the microorganism is present, causing infection to the respiratory tract.

LISTERIA MONOCYTOGENES

Listeria monocytogenes is a bacterium that belongs to the Bacillales order. It can contaminate various food stuffs, including milk, vegetables, undercooked meat or dairy products and is responsible for Listeriosis.

Resisting even at low temperatures, this bacterium can also survive in industrial environments, such as food industries, where this contamination can be a real problem.

SALMONELLA ENTERITIDIS

Salmonella enteritidis is a bacterium that is part of the Enterobacteriaceae family and is responsible for salmonellosis, a food poisoning that can spread in collective catering, such as canteens.

Since this bacterium can be contracted through the ingestion of contaminated food or drink, it is essential to maintain cleanliness of the hands, surfaces and utensils dedicated to food preparation.

STAPHYLOCOCCUS AUREUS

Staphylococcus aureus is a common bacterium, the main cause of skin and soft tissue infections.

Staphylococcus aureus infections are generally caused by the ingestion of contaminated food, mainly milk and all the derivatives, but also fresh and preserved meat and fish products, mainly fresh. The most frequent cause of contamination is the lack of hygiene of personnel involved in food product processing.

ENTEROCOCCUS HIRAE

Enterococcus Hirae is a bacterium that is part of the Enterococci, a genus of bacteria widely found in nature.

Most Enterococcus infections are contracted in health and hospital facilities, causing infections of different types, especially in immuno-deficient individuals. Transmission can also occur through the use of infected instruments.

CLOSTRIDIUM DIFFICILE

Clostridium Difficile is an anaerobic bacteria, Gram-positive, physiologically found in the human body and traceable in faeces.  Clostridium Difficile is transmitted through contact via hands, mouth and other mucous (such as ears and eyes) after handling objects and/or touch surfaces contaminated by infected faeces.
The bacteria can survive for long periods of time on objects and surfaces. The leading methods of prevention are: washing hands after using the toilette and in any case before eating and making sure bathrooms are correctly cleaned and sanitised.

Fungi

CANDIDA ALBICANS

Candida Albicans is one of the most difficult fungal strains to eradicate.

Even if Candida is resident in the intestine, it is useful as long as it remains in the right ratio with the native microbial flora but if it proliferates excessively, due to the mycotoxins it emanates, it can also emigrate elsewhere in the organism, generating other problems that are difficult to eradicate.

It is therefore essential to ensure the hygiene of surfaces and hands.

PENICILLIUM AURANTIOGRISEUM

The Penicillium Aurantiogriseum is one of the most widespread fungal species in nature and its many species are able to develop in the most diverse habitats. One of the areas where it is most frequently found is the agri-food sector, where it can contaminate foodstuffs both in the field and during storage.

ASPERGILLUS NIGER

Aspergillus Niger is one of the 200 types of mould belonging to the Aspergillus family. It develops in environments rich in oxygen and feeds mainly on starch, so if it is not kept under control it can contaminate cereal and potato crops.

ASPERGILLUS BRASILIENSIS

Aspergillus Brasiliensis is one of the 200 types of mould belonging to the Aspergillus family. It develops in environments rich in oxygen and feeds mainly on starch, so if it is not kept under control it can contaminate cereal and potato crops.

Viruses

A/H1N1

Influenza A/H1N1 is an acute viral infection of the respiratory system with symptoms basically similar to those of traditional flu: rapid onset of fever, coughing, sore throat, general malaise. As with traditional flu, serious complications are possible, such as pneumonia. 

Human-to-human transmission of the influenza A H1N1 virus can occur by air through the saliva drops of those who cough or sneeze, but also indirectly through contact with hands contaminated by respiratory secretions. For this reason, good hygiene of the hands and respiratory secretions is essential in limiting the spread of the flu.
