Application Note: Neutralizing efficiency of lecithin and polysorbate 80 in ICR contact plates and swabs for surface monitoring
18 February 2020

Sample monitoring requires non-selective culture media that should be supplemented with appropriate neutralizers to overcome or minimize antimicrobial activity. To check the suitability of typical mixtures of neutralizers such as LT (lecithin and polysorbate 80), this scientific poster compares several commercially available disinfectants for worst case neutralization efficiency tests.
