Caitlinn B. Lineback, Carine A. Nkemngong, Sophie Tongyu Wu, Xiaobao Li, Peter J. Teska and Haley F. Oliver Eight disinfectants, including accelerated hydrogen peroxide®, regular hydrogen peroxide and quaternary ammonium compound (QUAT)-based products were tested against Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) and Pseudomonas aeruginosa (P. aeruginosa) biofilms. The sodium hypochlorite and hydrogen peroxide-based products effectively decontaminated biofilms, whereas QUAT-based products did not.
