Antiseptics and disinfectants have diverse applications in hand washing, pre-operative skin disinfection, mucous membrane disinfection, preventing and treating infected wounds and burns, and in laboratory settings for cleaning and disinfecting different types of instruments and workstations. These are widely employed in hospitals and pathological laboratories, clinical research institutes, pharmaceutical and food & beverage industries, and in-home care settings.
