BACKGROUND Biofilm has been suggested as a cause of disinfection failures in flexible endoscopes where no lapses in the decontamination procedure can be identified. To test this theory, the activity of peracetic acid, one of the widely used disinfectants in the reprocessing of flexible endoscopes, was evaluated against both planktonic and sessile communities of Pseudomonas aeruginosa. AIM To investigate the ability of P. aeruginosa biofilm to survive high-level peracetic acid disinfection… CONTINUE READING
