Disinfectans, from dis, and inficio, infectum, (in and facio,) 'I infect,' (F.) Desinfectant. This term has been restricted by some to agents that are capable of neutralizing morbific effluvia; but the author includes under it; also, antiseptics or agents that are capable of removing any incipient or fully formed septic condition of the living body, or of any part of it.
