Impact of test protocols and material binding on the efficacy of antimicrobial wipes
Westgate, R., Robertson, A., Barrell, M., Teska, P. and Mailard, J.Y. This study tested quaternary ammonium compound (QUAT)-based products, accelerated hydrogen peroxide (AHP®) and a neutral cleaner against Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) and Pseudomonas aeruginosa (P. aeruginosa) using a variety of wipe substrates. AHP achieved the greatest efficacy overall, though performed significantly better when applied with microfibre and non-woven material compared to cotton.
