Prospective cluster-controlled crossover trial to compare the impact of an improved hydrogen peroxide disinfectant and a quaternary ammonium-based disinfectant on surface contamination and healthcare outcomes

Written by Virox

Boyce J.M., Guercia K.A., Sullivan L., Havill N.L., Fekieta R., Kozakiewicz J. and Goffman D. This study compared the efficacy of a quaternary ammonium compound (Quat)-based disinfectant and an accelerated hydrogen peroxide (AHP®) disinfectant when used to clean high-touch surfaces in hospital wards. Bacterial counts were significantly reduced in the AHP® trials, and high-touch surfaces yielded no growth significantly more often when AHP® was used.
