    The article considers some of the limitations of “hygienic” antimicrobial surfaces used in the environment, particularly in terms of validating their effectiveness at point of use. Although it is often simple to visualise in vitro the diffusion of an antimicrobial from a surface, via the resultant inhibition of target organisms, it is less easy to demonstrate antimicrobial properties of a surface that is exposed to the air.
