Inactivation of MSSA following culture in white light or complete darkness. Methicillin-sensitive Staphylococcus aureus (MSSA) was inactivated following exposure to 60 mW/cm2 405 nm light after culture in fluorescent laboratory lighting (white light) or complete darkness. Each data point is a mean value ± SD (n ≥ 6). No significant differences were found between the susceptibility of the light and dark cultured MSSA, using two-sample t-Test (P ≥ 0.05). No significant changes were observed in the final control populations (P ≥ 0.05)
