Is a chlorine dioxide wiping procedure suitable for the high-level disinfection of nasendoscopes?
The ClO2 wiping procedure showed bactericidal and sporicidal efficacy on a contaminated nasendoscope in a shorter time compared to the PA soaking procedure, and might be considered as an alternative to the traditional HLD procedure for nasendoscopes.
The use of dioxy MP 14 (stabilized aqueous chlorine dioxide) to control environmental airborne microorganisms
This study was a pilot study, with encouraging results, for an extended study to investigate the feasibility of introducing Dioxy MP 14 through a misting system in a clinical environment to control airborne pathogens like Mycobacterium tuberculosis thereby reducing the infection risks for clinical workers and medical staff.
Environmental monitoring and bactericidal efficacy of chlorine dioxide gas in a dental office.
In the bactericidal efficacy test using ClO₂ gas, the dental operatory could be kept clean by the use of 4 mg/L-ClO⁂ gas in addition to theUse of an AC with a plasma filter and the HEPA filter.
Evaluation of mycobactericidal activity of selected chemical disinfectants and antiseptics according to European standards
Tested products for disinfection and antiseptics containing active substances from different chemical groups showed high mycobactericidal activity and met the requirements of the appropriate European standards in most cases, but in the case of products containing guanidine and amine compounds, the concentration of active ingredients used in the test and the test conditions specified by the manufacturer did not provide the myc Cobactericidal action required by the standards.
Efficacy of disinfectant-impregnated wipes used for surface disinfection in hospitals: a review
Current standards evaluating the DIWs’ efficacy are required to improve for more realistic condition simulation and differentiating between mechanical removal of inoculum from a surface and chemical inactivation of the test microbe.
Effects of nutritional and ambient oxygen condition on biofilm formation in Mycobacterium avium subsp. hominissuis via altered glycolipid expression
Analysis of environmental isolates revealed that hypoxia preferentially enhanced pellicle formation both in plastic plates and in glass tubes, compared with hypercapnia, and a functional role of GPLs on development of pellicles in MAH is suggested.

Chlorine, Chloramine, Chlorine Dioxide, and Ozone Susceptibility of Mycobacterium avium
Environmental and patient isolates of Mycobacterium avium were resistant to chlorine, monochloramine, chlorine dioxide, and ozone, and cell susceptibility was the same in washed cultures containing aggregates and in reduced aggregate fractions lacking aggregates.

An evaluation of the use of chlorine dioxide ( Tristel One-Shot ) in an automated washer / disinfector ( Medivator ) fitted with a chlorine dioxide generator for decontamination of flexible endoscopes
Microbiological tests were carried out to evaluate a new chlorine dioxide sterilant: Tristel OneShot. Preliminary in vitro suspension tests showed that solutions containing around 140 ppm chlorine
