We evaluated the efficacy of different neutralizing solutions for use in disinfectant efficacy assays. Our approach used comparisons between the recoveries of low inocula in different treatment populations. The challenge organisms employed were those described by the AOAC for use in determining germicidal, tuberculocidal, sporicidal, and fungicidal activity of disinfectants. Neutralizer efficacy (NE) ratios were determined by comparing the recovery of identical inocula from the neutralizing… CONTINUE READING
