Division of Laboratory Animal Resources, University of Pittsburgh.
Bihler, L. et al.
The purpose of this study was to determine if Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide® is a viable alternative disinfectant to chlorine dioxide in rodent facilities. It was concluded that AHP® is as effective as chlorine dioxide when used during rodent cage changes.





Pork producers have another option for disinfecting against PEDv

With the advent of devastating diseases affecting the swine industry, much attention is being given to biosecurity in an effort to improve hygiene and ultimately prevent the spread of pathogens. As such, industry is looking to new chemical formulations, vetted protocols and scientific support data as a front line defense to ideally prevent disease, and when required eradicate an outbreak. This study considers a relatively new yet proven chemistry broadly used in healthcare facilities known as Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide® (AHP®) in contrast with current chemistries that have known shortcomings. The third party study conducted by the renowned University of Iowa shows that AHP is superior to the incumbent chemistries tested.


An evaluation of the effectiveness of sanitation procedures using an Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide® (Accel) disinfectant to reduce virus transmission via livestock transport vehicles.

Twenty-first Annual Swine Disease Conference for Swine Practitioners, November 2013.
Schneider, P. et al. (2013).
This study compared the efficacy of Accel disinfectant and Synergize disinfectant against PRRSV and TGEV in model livestock trailers under conditions similar to those experienced in commercial pork production.


Evaluating Post-Milking Teat Dip Efficacy Using Somatic Cell Count Data.

Bradley, A.J. et al. (2008).
The purpose of this study was to compare the efficacy of two post milking teat disinfectans using both bacteriology and somatic cell counts, secondly to compare the impact of the two products on teat skin condition and lastly, to assess the utility of different approaches to defining IMI and assessing efficacy.
