Fellow Microbiologists:
Does anyone have a procedure to neutralize 6% hydrogen peroxide (H2O2)
for disinfectant efficacy testing?
We are having a problem recovering one of our test bacteria in the
stasis testing in samples containing 6% H2O2.
We are having to add a significant dilution factor for this bug and it
is affecting our ability to analyze the level of killing.
Thanks in advance,
