STERILITY TEST OF pHluorus

bacteria
INSET: Tile on the left restored like new with pHluorus. Right side treated with other cleaners.

BELOW: Background tile and grout cleaned with pHluorus. Agar culture dishes --left treated with pHluorus, no growth. Right side, Other cleaners shows 15 colonies of bacteria.

 

 

 

Purpose

The purpose of the test was to assess the qualities of pHluorus as a cleaning/bacteria-growth blocking agent in a hospital environment.

Test Date

The test was performed during the period November 9-11, 1989.

Location

The test was performed at Mesa Lutheran Hospital, Mesa, Arizona.

Area Tested

The test involved a selected floor area in the hospital kitchen.

Testing Procedure

1.Before treatment with pHluorus , samples of the floor surface coating material in the "as given other cleaner state" were collected by rubbing the floor with sterile Q-tips. The Q-tips were transported to the laboratory in the original Q-tip plastic bag.

2.The same floor area was subsequently treated with a solution of 50% concentration of standard pHluorus product. The treatment was carried on in the following steps:

a. The floor area was covered with the pHluorus solution.

b. The covered area was brushed with a regular cleaning brush.

c. After 2 minutes, the floor area was rinsed with tap water.

d. The excess water was then removed by absorbing it with sterile (operating room) towels.

3.After treatment, new sterile Q-tips were used to collect materials for microbial culture analysis.

4.The sample materials collected before and after pHluorus treatment of the floor were transported within minutes to the laboratory of the Cardio-Vascular Operating Room.

5.The sample materials collected before and after floor treatment were transferred to Petri dishes, and covered with standard Agar-Agar.

6.The sample materials were maintained in the incubator for 48 hours.

STERILITY TEST OF pHluorus

Results

1.The sample materials collected from the kitchen floor before treatment with pHluorus product developed 15 colonies of bacteria.

2.The sample materials collected from the kitchen floor after treatment with the pHluorus product showed no bacteria development.

Conclusion

The test demonstrates that pHluorus can be successfully used as a cleaning bacteria/blocking agent for typical kitchen floor areas, and exceeds the mandatory sterility requirements for hospital environments.
