Sterilization, Antiseptics & Disinfectants
An antiseptic is an antimicrobial substance which can be applied to living tissue to reduce the possibility of infection. Whereas, a disinfectant is a substance which is used on a non-living object to destroy microorganisms. Sterilization is the process of destroying microorganisms. There are no degrees of sterilization - an object is either sterile or non sterile. This essentially means that sterilization kills all microorganisms on a body. Whereas, disinfection kills most but not all microorganisms. Sterilization is extremely important in places like a hospital, where doctors and surgeons use instruments for surgical procedures. The instruments must be sterile prior to use. Sterilization products have been the backbone of healthcare delivery since the discovery of their role in reduction of infection.The usage of antiseptic surgical methods was championed by Joseph Lister. The sterilization procedure uses either one of heat, radiation or chemicals. The most common way of sterilization is through a process called autoclaving which uses steam under pressure to destroy germs.
