thesisposted on 29.01.2018, 11:51 by Douglas W.M. Gardner
Combinations of ultraviolet light (UV) and the oxidising agents, hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) and ozone (O3), were evaluated for disinfecting solid surfaces. Studies were conducted using spores of the bacterium Bacillus subtilis (ATCC 6633) attached to materials ranging from filter papers and membranes to aluminium and PTFE. Techniques were developed for depositing, recovering and enumerating spores from these surfaces. [Continues.]
