English term or phrase: biocidal agent
Definition from Science Direct:
Biocides are classified as active substances and preparations containing one or more active substances. These are intended to destroy, deter, render harmless, prevent the action of, or otherwise exert a controlling effect on any harmful organism by chemical or biological means.

Example sentence(s):
  • In their paper, ‘Persistence of coronaviruses on inanimate surfaces and their inactivation with biocidal agents’, scientists found that coronaviruses can be efficiently inactivated by surface disinfection procedures with 62–71 per cent ethanol, 0.5 per cent hydrogen peroxide or 0.1 per cent sodium hypochlorite within one minute. Net Doctor
  • The scientists argued past research has demonstrated “inactivation of coronaviruses by biocidal agents”. Yahoo News
  • “Human-to-human transmissions have been described with incubation times between 2-10 days, facilitating its spread via droplets, contaminated hands or surfaces. We therefore reviewed the literature on all available information about the persistence of human and veterinary coronaviruses on inanimate surfaces as well as inactivation strategies with biocidal agents used for chemical disinfection, e.g. in healthcare facilities.” Diagnostic Imaging

biocīds


Definition from PTAC:
Biocīdi ir vielas, ko izmanto, lai iznīcinātu, atbaidītu, padarītu nekaitīgu jebkuru kaitīgu organismu — dzīvniekus, augus vai mikroorganismus, ieskaitot vīrusus, kas rada kaitējumu vai neērtības attiecībā uz cilvēku veselības vai īpašuma bojājumiem.

Example sentence(s):
  • Biocīdu, kurus reizēm izmanto izstrādājumos, piemēri ir antibakteriālie līdzekļi. Tos dažreiz pievieno, lai kontrolētu baktērijas vai sliktas smakas, piemēram, sporta apģērbam. - PTAC  
  • Biocīds ir jebkura viela vai maisījums lietotājam piegādātajā veidā, kas sastāv no vienas vai vairākām aktīvajām vielām, satur vai rada vienu vai vairākas aktīvās vielas, lai iznīcinātu, atbaidītu, padarītu nekaitīgu jebkuru kaitīgu organismu, kavētu tā iedarbību vai uz to iedarbotos citādā veidā, kas nav tikai fiziska vai mehāniska iedarbošanās - Biocīdu regula  
  • Skat, pēc šokolādes smaržojošas ziepes! Izrādās, antibakteriālās, tātad — biocīds līdzeklis. - Meklējam biocīdus mājoklī
