Bacterial growth before and after skin disinfectant. Bacterial growth before and after treatment with skin disinfectant (chlorhexidine 5 mg/mL in 70 % ethanol) at the four time points. The median is identified by a line inside the box. The length of the box is the interquartile range (IQR), and whiskers are min and max if no outliers are present. Outliers of more than 1.5 IQR’s are labeled as (o) and outliers of more than three IQR are labelled as (*)
