Diosol - Ecological disinfectant - guarantees hygienic safety

guarantees hygienic safety that was absent before.


A review of previous hygiene studies showed that the requirements of the German Society for Hygiene and Microbiology (DGHM) respectively the Association for Applied Hygiene (VAH) are fully met when using a 3% and a 6% solution.

Highly effective disinfectant to combat bacteria, fungi and viruses.
The antimicrobial efficacy has been assessed and demonstrated in numerous investigations, including based on German Society for Hygiene and Microbiology (DGHM) procedures. The range of action covers gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria (including Legionella), aerobic spore producers, yeasts and moulds as well as important viruses pathogenic to humans (including Herpes, Hepatitis, HIV, Influenza).

Due to the chemical composition of DiosolTM, biofilms are also attacked. [1] This results in, among others, the comprehensive efficacy also against spore producers and moulds, that are often not combated by standard disinfectants.


In preliminary studies, hydrogen peroxide vapor decontamination has been found to be a highly effective method of eradicating MRSA, Serratia marcescens, Clostridium botulinum spores and Clostridium difficile from rooms, furniture, surfaces and/or equipment. [2]

Clinically proven disinfection method

All DiosolGenerator models as well as the corresponding Diosol disinfectants are clinically proven units. All generators should only be used along with Diosol disinfectants as the efficiency has been tested for many years.

  • Bacteria are prokaryotic and have no nucleus
  • in the cellsof bacteria there is only one cell nucleus equivalent
  • multiplication of bacteria takes place by cell division
  • the cell wall of bacteria consists of mucopolysaccharides
  • Bacteria are very sensitive to antibiotics

    Information about fungi:

  • Fungi are eukaryotic and have a nucleus
  • The multiplication of cells takes place by mitosis

  • Viruses are a distinct group: infectious and capable of reproduction
  • Viruses are obligate parasites to cells
  • there is a distinction between enveloped and non-enveloped viruses
  • Viruses are "only" a carrier of genetic information
