Surgical scrub formulations are designed to remove both the transient microorganism population as well as a large proportion of the normal flora of the hands. In order to be considered effective, surgical scrub formulations must demonstrate both immediate and persistent antimicrobial effectiveness (up to six hours post scrub). Additionally, some surgical scrub formulations may demonstrate an accumulative residual effect by becoming a more effective antimicrobial with repeated use over time, due to the active ingredients being attached directly onto the surface of the skin.
Subjects will use the product over the course of a few days and the effect on their hands will be tested using our Glove Juice sampling method. Samples will be taken immediately on test day as well as at 6 hour and even 12 hour time-points if needed.
