English term or phrase: environmental surfaces
The company offers a line of testing products to detect allergens in food, ingredients, or on environmental surfaces.

Ik dacht zelf aan 'ruimtelijke oppervlakten', maar vermoed dat er een betere benaming voor is.

omgevingsoppervlakken
Explanation:
lijkt me een optie, want environment slaat op de omgeving, dit in tegenstelling tot contactoppervlakken waar een persoon (de patient) direct contact mee heeft.

Referentie op internet:

http://www.wip.nl/ThipDocs/desinfecteren_en.htm
Deze omgevingsoppervlakken kunnen worden onderverdeeld in medische hulpmiddelen zoals knoppen op een beademingsmachine en instrumententrays, en in huishoudelijke oppervlakken zoals vloeren en wanden. Volgens de CDC kunnen deze oppervlakken veilig worden gereinigd zonder gebruik te maken van agressieve schoonmaak- of desinfectiemiddelen(1).







http://unimaxsupply.com/sitepgs/1surfaces.htm
Environmental surfaces such as floors, walls and related objects are not associated with transmission of infections to patients or health-care workers and therefore, extraordinary attempts to disinfect these surfaces are not necessary. Cleaning to remove gross filth and contamination is sufficient.
Environmental surfaces such as adjustment knobs, handles, buttons, instrument trays and carts and lights though never coming in direct contact with clients may frequently become contaminated with client material by being touched, often repeatedly and so require cleaning and disinfection.
