A novel electrolyzed sodium chloride solution for the disinfection for dried HIV-1

Microbe(s): Bulletin of Osaka Medical College 48 (2003): 29-36

ABSTRACT - Full Text PDF

Electrolyzed products of a sodium chloride solution contain free residual chlorine and have been proved to be effective for disinfection. Electrolyzed strong acid water containing a low sodium chloride concentration (ESW-L) is prepared by the electrolysis of a solution containing a low sodium chloride concentration (0.1% or less). Although ESW-L has been confirmed to be an effective disinfectant,...

The Bactericidal Effects of Electrolyzed Oxidizing Water on Bacterial Strains Involved in Hospital Infections

Microbe(s): Artificial Organs 28.6 (2004): 590-592

ABSTRACT - Full Text PDF

The study is designed to investigate bactericidal actions of electrolyzed oxidizing water on hospital infec-tions. Ten of the most common opportunistic pathogens are used for this study. Cultures are inoculated in 4.5 mL of electrolyzed oxidizing (EO) water or 4.5 mL of sterile deionized water (control), and incubated for 0, 0.5, and 5 min at room temperature. At the exposure time of 30 s the EO...

Evaluation of liquid-and fog-based application of Sterilox hypochlorous acid solution for surface inactivation of human norovirus

Microbe(s): Applied and environmental microbiology 73.14 (2007): 4463-4468

ABSTRACT - Full Text PDF

Noroviruses (NVs) are the most frequent cause of outbreaks of gastroenteritis in common settings, with surface-mediated transfer via contact with fecally contaminated surfaces implicated in exposure. NVs are environmentally stable and persistent and have a low infectious dose. Several disinfectants have been evaluated for efficacy to control viruses on surfaces, but the toxicity and potential...

Efficacy of acidic and basic electrolyzed water in eradicating Staphylococcus aureus biofilm

Microbe(s): Canadian Journal of Microbiology 58.4 (2012): 448-454

ABSTRACT - Full Text PDF

Staphylococcus aureus is a major pathogen. It can form biofilm on the surfaces of medical devices and food equipment, which makes it more difficult to eradicate. To develop a novel method to eradicate S. aureus biofilm, the effects of electrolyzed water on removing and killing S. aureus biofilm were investigated in this study. By using a biofilm biomass assay with safranin staining and...

Evaluating use of neutral electrolyzed water for cleaning near-patient surfaces

Microbe(s): Infection Control & Hospital Epidemiology 35.12 (2014): 1505-1510

ABSTRACT - Full Text PDF

This study aimed to monitor the microbiological effect of cleaning near-patient sites over a 48-hour period with a novel disinfectant, electrolyzed water. One ward dedicated to acute care of the elderly population in a district general hospital in Scotland. Lockers, left and right cotsides, and overbed tables in 30 bed spaces were screened for aerobic colony count (ACC), methicillin-susceptible...
