Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Terminal room cleaning is critical in preventing pathogen transmission; however, the optimal cleaning effectiveness assessment modality is still being investigated. We sequentially compared cleanliness assessment agreement between a fluorescent marker and an adenosine triphosphate bioluminescence method, finding no significant differences between modalities.
