Control of Microorganisms by Physical and Chemical Agents



Definition of frequently used terms in microbial control methods l.jpg
Definition of Frequently Used Terms in Microbial control methods

Sterilization

  • destruction or removal of all viable organisms from an object or habitat.

    Disinfection

  • killing, inhibition, or removal of pathogenic organisms that may cause disease:substantial reduction of total population.

  • Disinfectants

    • agents, usually chemical, used for disinfection; not necessary kills viable spores


More definitions l.jpg
More Definitions… methods

Sanitization

  • reduction of microbial population to levels deemed safe (based on public health standards)

    Antisepsis

  • prevention of infection or sepsis. of living tissue by microorganisms using antiseptics.

  • antiseptics

    • chemical agents that kill or inhibit growth of microorganisms when applied to tissue-should not be toxic as disinfectants to kill host tissues.


Antimicrobial agents l.jpg
Antimicrobial Agents methods

  • agents that kill microorganisms or inhibit their growth e;g Chemotherapy- chemical agent to kill or inhibit growth of microorganisms within host tissues.

  • -cidal agents to kill

  • -static agents to inhibit growth


Cidal agents l.jpg
-cidal Agents methods

-cide

  • suffix indicating that agent kills

  • germicide

    • kills pathogens and many nonpathogens but not necessarily endospores

  • include bactericides, fungicides, algicides, and viricides


Static agents l.jpg
-static Agents methods

-static

  • suffix indicating that agent inhibits growth

  • include bacteriostatic and fungistatic


The pattern of microbial death l.jpg
The Pattern of Microbial Death methods

A microbial population is not killed instantly

population death usually occurs exponentially as growth rate (Fig 8.2)

microorganisms were previously considered to be dead when they did not reproduce in conditions that normally supported their reproduction

however we now know that organisms can be in a viable but nonculturable (VBNC) condition

once they recover they may regain the ability to reproduce and cause infection


Microbial death l.jpg
…Microbial death methods

Decimal Reduction Time (D):

D is the time required to kill 90% of the microorganisms or spores in a sample under specified conditions.

Microorganisms is defined as dead when they don’t grow or reproduce when inoculated in culture medim.

Conditions influencing the effectiveness of antimicrobial agent activity l.jpg
Conditions Influencing the Effectiveness of Antimicrobial Agent Activity

Population size:

  • larger populations take longer to kill than smaller populations

    Population composition:

  • microorganisms differ markedly in their sensitivity to antimicrobial agents. Bacterial spores are much more resistant to Microbial agents e.g Mycobacterium tuberculosis.


More conditions l.jpg
More Conditions… Agent Activity

Concentration or intensity of an antimicrobial agent:

  • usually higher concentrations or intensities kill more rapidly

  • relationship is not linear

    Duration of exposure:

    longer exposure to antimicrobial agents more organisms killed


More conditions14 l.jpg
More Conditions… Agent Activity

Temperature:

  • higher temperatures usually increase amount of killing

    Local environment:

  • many factors (e.g., pH, viscosity and concentration of organic matter) can profoundly impact effectiveness

  • organisms in biofilms are physiologically altered and less susceptible to many antimicrobial agents. Organic matter in biofilms protects biofilm microorganisms.


The use of physical methods in control l.jpg
The Use of Physical Methods in Control Agent Activity

  • Heat

  • Low temperatures

  • Filtration

  • Radiation


Moist heat sterilization l.jpg
Moist Heat Sterilization Agent Activity

  • must be carried out above 100oC which requires saturated steam under pressure

  • Moist heat destroys viruses, bacteria and fungi

  • carried out using an autoclave (Fig8.3) also known as Steam Sterilizer

  • effective against all types of microorganisms including spores

  • degrades nucleic acids, denatures proteins, and disrupts membranes

    Decimal reduction time (D or D value)

  • time required to kill 90% of microorganisms or spores in a sample at a specific temperature (def previously)


Pasteurization l.jpg

Dry heat sterilization l.jpg
Dry Heat Sterilization Agent Activity

  • less effective than moist heat sterilization, requiring higher temperatures and longer exposure times

    • items subjected to 160-170oC for 2 to 3 hours

  • also used to reduce microbial populations in air


Filtering liquids l.jpg
Filtering Liquids Agent Activity

Depth filters

  • thick fibrous or granular materials bonded in thick layers that remove microorganisms by physical screening(size), entrapment, and/or adsorption to the surface of the filter materials.

  • Solution contain microorganisms are sucked under vacuum

  • membrane filters

    • porous membranes with defined pore sizes that remove microorganisms primarily by physical screening. This has replaced Depth Filters.




  • Filtering air l.jpg
    Filtering Air Agent Activity

    • surgical masks used in hospitals and Labs

    Ultraviolet uv radiation l.jpg
    Ultraviolet (UV) Radiation Agent Activity

    • UV (260nm) quite lethal is limited to surface sterilization because it does not penetrate glass, dirt films, water, and other substances.

    • UV prevent replication and transcription of Microbial DNA.

    • has been used for water treatment
