In the September 2019 issue of ‘Laboratory Animal Science Professional’, the article below was published reviewing a facility investigating the use of AHP® wipes, RTU and Concentrate (1:64) to reduce contamination of their electronic tablets. Overall, the case study revealed positive results and they state
The purpose of this study was to determine if Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide is a viable alternative disinfectant to chlorine dioxide in rodent facilities. It was concluded that AHP is as effective as chlorine dioxide when used during rodent cage changes.
For surface disinfection, the testing and label claims of many common disinfectants do not reflect the realities of field use.
Maintaining a high level of sanitation is essential for animal research facilities. Researcher and technician compliance, including appropriate application, is a common problem. Historically, our standard protocol included using a Chlorine Dioxide disinfectant (Clidox-S) followed by a wipe down with a less corrosive cl
This study was designed to test in vitro efficacy of improved hydrogen peroxide (HP) products against standard HP and Quat products. Improved HP was shown to be significantly superior to standard HP.
This study assessed the disinfectant efficacy between a Quat based product and Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide® (AHP®). AHP® reduced HAIs by 23% when compliance was ≥80%.
This study compared the efficacy of 4 different disinfectants used in footmats for decreasing bacterial contamination of footwear in a large animal hospital. AHP® was found to significantly reduce bacteria on overboots.
