Abstract

This study aimed to identify variation in the minimum biocidal concentration (MBC) over time, comparing three commercial super-oxidized solutions with different chemical compositions. In the bactericidal assay, the following bacteria were tested: Escherichia coli (ATCC 25922), Pseudomonas aeruginosa (ATCC 27853), Staphylococcus aureus (ATCC 25923), and for each ATCC, one wild-type strain was used. In vitro experiments were performed in triplicate at 0, 60, and 120 days of follow up. A commercial formulation based on sodium and chloride ions (SCSS) was tested using a standard accelerated aging protocol. Data were analyzed with the Friedman and Wilcoxon signed-rank tests. The results showed that super-oxidized solution bases of 20 ppm of sodium (SSS) had a significant change in MBC at 120 days (p < 0.001), whereas SCSS remained stable during the same period (p = 0.18). However, after accelerated aging treatment, the MBC of SCSS increased (p < 0.001). With our proposed approach, the two SSS showed MBC variation at 120 days, whereas SCSS showed stability over time, similar to chlorhexidine, but lost its bactericidal properties after accelerated aging treatment.

Attention Score in Context

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 3. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 02 March 2023.
All research outputs
#14,798,870
of 25,394,764 outputs
Outputs from Microbial Drug Resistance: Mechanism, Epidemiology, & Disease
#272
of 1,191 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#178,345
of 422,295 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Microbial Drug Resistance: Mechanism, Epidemiology, & Disease
#1
of 11 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 25,394,764 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 41st percentile – i.e., 41% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,191 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.4. This one has done well, scoring higher than 76% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 422,295 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 56% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 11 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 81% of its contemporaries.
