A comparison of bactericidal activity of two surface disinfectants showed that both were highly effective. The glutaraldehyde-based disinfectant showed higher efficacy on roughed surfaces than the alcohol-based disinfectant. The study used a novel, and generally applicable, method to evaluate the surface killing potential of disinfectants.
