What cleaning and disinfection practices apply to incubators ?
An incubator cleaning programme must be carried out, along with periodical cleanouts.
The following procedure is used :
cleaning (machines, room);
applying a detergent (enzyme foam) followed by rinsing;
disinfection with a spray (bactericidal and fungicidal disinfectant: LCB 130B), ultradiffusion (FUMAGRI OPP ; FUMAGRI HA) or fogging (LCB 130Bair).
If a health problem appears (Salmonella, Aspergillus), the disinfection plan should be intensified.
