Whilst antibacterial copper is regarded as effective for continuous antibacterial protection in high traffic areas, high cost and poor efficacy against some microorganisms restricts its application.
Evocide is a new genre of liquid surface disinfectant with broad spectrum antibacterial efficacy on application. Unlike conventional surface disinfectants, it dries to leave an invisible fingerprint-and water-resistant film that continues killing bacteria on contact for up to six months. These films readily dissolve during subsequent applications of Evocide or in >20% ethanol.
We present results of assaying the Evocide’s bactericidal efficacy both as liquid and as dried films.
