What is the difference between an antifungal agent and an antibacterial agent

Jul 24, 2019

The mold is usually a product in a dry film state, that is, a film for preventing mold growth, and a mold suppressing effect is necessary.

Antifungal agents are mainly used for molds and are additives that inhibit mold killing and mold growth under dry film conditions.

The main components of the antibacterial agent: silicon copper quaternary ammonium salt, Carson, surfactant, synergist and the like.

A drug that prevents microbes from causing mold.

Phenols (such as phenol), chlorophenols (such as pentachlorophenol), organic mercury salts (such as oleic acid benzene), organic copper salts (such as copper 8 hydroxyquinoline), organic tin salts (chlorinated, etc.), three Ethyl or tributyltin, and inorganic salts such as copper sulfate, mercuric chloride and sodium fluoride.

It is used in plastics, rubber, fabrics, paints and insulation.

The main components of the antifungal agent are calcium propionate, propionic acid, sorbic acid, benzoic acid, acetic acid and the like. Mold inhibitors are used to prevent mold during storage of foods and raw materials, and often need to be added at food factories.

The main fungicide market is the process of mesoscopic bearings by activated carbon and certain polymers, zeolite powder, diatomaceous earth, kaolin, montmorillonite, aluminosilicate, glucomannan, and specific mycotoxins.

Antibacterial and antifungal agents are different. Antibacterial and antifungal agents have slightly different mechanisms of action. Since different or antimicrobial agents have different active ingredients, the mechanism of action will be different.

An antimicrobial agent generally refers to an agent that kills bacteria and inhibits their proliferation.

An antifungal agent generally refers to a preparation that prevents mold from killing or inhibiting growth.

One is bacteria and the other is mold.

However, if bacteria and fungi are widely classified as bacteria, the antimicrobial agents are naturally referred to as preparations of bacteria and fungi.

Each type of antifungal and antibacterial agent has the ability to kill or inhibit bacteria and fungi, but in a different way. Some formulations are highly resistant to mildew, but their ability to inhibit bacteria is slightly weaker.

Some formulations have excellent ability to inhibit bacterial inhibition of mold, but the mechanism of action of the same drug is the same for molds and bacteria.

The same antifungal or antimicrobial agent can have a variety of mechanisms of action and mechanisms of action.

Many of Jianis' antifungal antibacterial agents are composed of a variety of antifungal and antibacterial ingredients. However, if they are analyzed from a single antimicrobial component, the mechanism of action is simple.

Therefore, the mechanism of action of antifungal and antifungal agents is mainly based on their active ingredients.

Antifungal antimicrobial agents, strong oxidizing properties, the active mechanism, or the mechanism of bactericidal action that interferes with the interruption of cytoplasmic fluids, are divided into inhibition of disintegration and fungicidal action of the plasma membrane of cells. Protein synthesis, genetic material synthesis, etc. stop the cell membrane or cell wall, causing reproduction to overflow.

The antimicrobial agent appears to be similar to the antifungal agent, but the mechanism is different due to the difference in the two compositions.
