Reviewing liquid sporicides


Since their introduction, liquid sporicides have become one of the products of choice for many biological research and production facilities wherever high-level microbial control is critical. Although they are marketed as low-toxicity products, appropriate care during use is essential to prevent potentially dangerous conditions, exposures, and injuries.

An interesting overview of sporicidal disinfectants has been written for Lab Manager magazine. The article can be accessed on-line. The focus of the article is with health and safety and matters such as residues.

A fuller overview of sporidical disinfectant types and their validation requirements can be found in the ‘Cleaning and Disinfectant Handbook’. To find out more about this book, see this page.
