AIM To evaluate the efficacy of light-activated disinfection (LAD) using methylene blue (MB) and a non-coherent light source on gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria in different growth modes. The influence of different photosensitizer (PS) formulations in the MB-mediated LAD of biofilms was also evaluated. METHODOLOGY Light-activated disinfection using MB was tested on Enterococcus faecalis in a planktonic suspension, coaggregated suspension and mono-species biofilms and on Pseudomonas… CONTINUE READING
