Fast-Acting, Broad-Spectrum Disinfectant
- Created on Wednesday, 02 September 2009
A broad-spectrum pathogen disinfectant is sought that can kill Clostridium difficile (spore phase) in less than five minutes of contact time; preferably within a minute or less. A formulation that requires longer than a minute is also of interest if it can be formulated to provide ongoing protection. Ideally, the proposed solution will be “green”; that is, environmentally responsible in its formulation, manufacture, and effect on the environment after use. Metals such as copper, zinc, or silver ions cannot be part of the formulation.
