Glutaraldehyde (GTA) is a widely used biocide due to its high effectiveness. The experimental work reported here was carried out to assess the effectiveness of GTA in controlling biofilms formed by Pseudomonas fluorescens on stainless steel slides, and to compare efficacy against both planktonic and sessile micro‐rganisms. The tests were performed using two concentrations of GTA (50 and 100mg 1‐1), biofilms of two ages (7 and 15 d), several pH values (5,7 and 9) and a range of exposure times… CONTINUE READING
