Can these terms really coexist?


Disinfectant products are widely used in Healthcare settings. 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. A new technology based on Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide® (AHP®) was assessed for its antimicrobial activity using EPA approved test methods, as well as its user safety and environmental fate compliance with the Design for the Environment (DfE) Antimicrobial Pesticide Pilot Project.
