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. You can rest assured your public health inspection reports are accurate and complete.
Hydrogen peroxide has microbiolcidal 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.
Indigo™ Instruments offers hydrogen peroxide test strips in 4 ranges to confirm you have diluted the concentrate correctly down to as low as 1ppm (0.0001%) or to as high as 10% (100,000ppm). Our free Hydrogen Peroxide Dilution Calculator
can help dilute accurately.

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.
Hydrogen peroxide is readily available in drugstores in small quantities as a 3% solution or in jugs at higher concentrations, 30-35%, commonly referred to as food grade.
