AHP Evaluating Post-Milking Teat Dip Efficacy Using Somatic Cell Count Data

Bradley, A.J. et al. (2008).

The purpose of this study was to compare the efficacy of two post milking teat disinfectants using both bacteriology and somatic cell counts, secondly to compare the impact of the two products on teat skin condition and lastly, to assess the utility of different approaches to defining IMI and assessing efficacy.

Wipes and Disinfectants – The Significance of Appropriate Pairing for Environmental Surface Decontamination.

Virox Technologies Inc.

Proper pairing between wipe substrates and disinfectants is crucial to maximize surface decontamination. Various factors, such as the substrate material, manufacturing process and disinfectant chemistry can impact the ability of a disinfectant to work on a surface; an incompatible pairing often has a major negative impact on surface decontamination.

An evaluation of the effectiveness of sanitation procedures using an accelerated hydrogen peroxide (Accel) disinfectant to reduce virus transmission via livestock transport vehicles.

Schneider, P.; Holtkamp, D.; Ramirez, A.; Zhang, J. | Twenty-first Annual Swine Disease Conference for Swine Practitioners, November 2013.

This study compared the efficacy of Accel disinfectant and Synergize disinfectant against PRRSV and TGEV in model livestock trailers under conditions similar to those experienced in commercial pork production.

Battling Bacterial Biofilms: AHP as an effective replacement for Chlorine-Based Disinfectants.

Virox Technologies Inc.

There are a selection of biofilm growth methods for in-lab testing of antimicrobials against biofilms, where the CDC and MBEC methods are the two most commonly used methods. The current study has looked into determining if merging of the two prominent techniques can provide a more desirable protocol for biofilm growth and testing. Additionally, two antimicrobial agents have been used to assess the strength of the grown biofilms; a standard sodium hypochlorite (SHC) solution as a known biofilm killing agent, and diluted Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide® (AHP®) concentrate formula as a novel agent against biofilms.

Green and Safe Disinfectants, can these terms really coexist?

Navid Omidbakhsh, PhD, PEng | American Journal of Infection Control 42 (2014) S29-S166

It is a common belief that these products are somewhat toxic to the user due to their toxicity against microorganisms. The objective of this study was to propose that this notion is not necessarily true, and showcase new technologies that are able to achieve disinfection without harm to the user or the environment.
