Lethality kinetics study over the two most important sporeformers within the Life Science industry.

This article analyzes the hydrogen peroxide deactivation kinetics of representative bioburden in the pharmaceutical, healthcare and food industries, as well as the role of microbial and process variables, such as, type of microorganism (Geobacillus stearothermophilus or Bacillus atrophaeus), temperature, or particle distribution impact over the deactivation process. In addition, the effect of the use of an atomized hydrogen peroxide technology for surface decontamination against the two spore formers microorganisms is also explored.
