Indigo® Hydrogen Peroxide Test Strips


Hydrogen peroxide has microbiocidal activity against bacteria, yeasts, fungi, viruses, and spores. It shows bactericidal effectiveness against a variety of health-care–associated pathogens with high cellular catalase activity (e.g., S. aureus, S. marcescens, and Proteus mirabilis). A 30–60 minutes of exposure to 0.6% (6000ppm) hydrogen peroxide will reduce cell counts. In organisms with lower catalase activity (e.g. E. coli, Streptococcus sp. & Pseudomonas sp.), only 15 minutes exposure was required. Antiviral activity of hydrogen peroxide showed inactivation of three serotypes of rhinovirus using a 3% hydrogen peroxide solution within 6–8 minutes. Lower concentrations such as 1.5% (15000ppm) took 18-20 minutes and 0.75% (7500ppm) took 50–60 minutes.

Hydrogen peroxide bubbles distinctively when disinfecting cuts & scrapes and bleaches hair to produce the proverbial bottled blonde. Tasteless & odorless, it quickly decomposes into just water & oxygen. This environmental friendliness has made it popular for use in industries as diverse as water treatment, mushroom growing, organic farming & float tanks.

Interesting fact: Hydrogen peroxide, among other things, ensures that bacteria won't spoil honey. Edible honey has been found in ancient Egyptian tombs.

Documentation for healthcare quality assurance certification includes Certificates of Analysis, Stability Statements and Safety Data Sheets (SDS). All strips meet or exceed a minimum 3 year guaranteed shelf life.

However, records show that a 5 year shelf life or even longer on our test strips is typical. Read more at: Expiration dates-Good Today, Dead Tomorrow? You may also find Diluting Chlorine, Peroxide or Quat Sanitizers is Easy useful. Warning: you have to understand a tiny bit of metric.&
