As a society, however, we most commonly associate the issue of biofilms with their related infections. Examples of these are otitis media and bacterial endocarditis, which are caused by bacteria entering a fluid filled part of the body. Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide® (AHP®) is relatively new yet proven technology that has gained a reputation as being one of the most effective yet safe technologies on the market. In fact, two studies have been conducted using AHP highlighting its ability to kill and remove biofilms. This document will help you and decision makers to better understand what Biofilms are and the relevance of using a disinfectant capable of killing and removing them.
