Abstract

Sporicidin, diluted 1:16, used as a disinfectant hand dip, was found to produce substantial percent reductions in the mean number of colony-forming units in comparisons between microbial recoveries of the control and Sporicidin-dipped hands. Sporicidin at this concentration appears to demonstrate efficacy as an antimicrobial agent, but dermal irritation, sensitivity and yellowing of the skin, and its objectionable odor may preclude its routine clinical use.
