Factors Impacting the Bactericidal and Fungicidal Efficacy of Disinfectants on Hard, Non-Porous Surfaces
Disinfectant application on environmental surfaces is generally accepted to be effective
against vegetative pathogens. However, several important application considerations are not being evaluated
in the registration of these disinfectant solutions. This thesis looks into factors impacting the disinfectant wipes' bactericidal and fungicidal efficacy on hard, non-porous surfaces and how the interaction between the disinfectant solution and wipe substrate lead to changes in the efficacy of disinfection.
