Figure 1.

Reduction factors of six different contact lens care solutions tested according to the Stand Alone Test (quantitative suspension test) of the EN ISO 14729 without organic load. (Bars show the reduction factor of each contact lens care solution for each microorganism: Staphylococcus aureus (horizontally-striped bars), Pseudomonas aeruginosa (fasciated bars), Serratia marcescens (hatched bars), Candida albicans (dotted black bars) and Fusarium solani (dotted grey bars). Results are the mean values of the reduction factors in log [CFU/ml] ± standard deviation (error bars) of at least three different batches. Min = MMRDT (manufacturer’s minimum recommended disinfection time), Max = overnight (8h)).
