A study was set up at Basel University hospital to address the question of whether, under realistic clinical conditions, improvements in the efficiency of WDs is possible. Two alkaline based, silicate-free cleaning agents were tested for a month in the hospital’s CSSD. 

The two cleaners selected for testing were a new detergent - thermosept® x-tra (known in the study as tX) and an older, established product – MediClean forte (mC). This article examines the study objectives, design and results, as well as the practical implications of the findings.
