Abstract

To add a spore germination step in order to reduce decontamination temperature and time requirements compared to the current hot, humid air decontamination parameters, which are 75-80°C, ≥72 h, 70-90% RH, down to ≤60°C and ≤24 h total decontamination time. Bacillus anthracis spore germi...read more
