Determination of bactericidal activity of bacillocid by phenol coefficient method
Author(s): Dr. Arijit Chatterjee
Abstract: Bacillocid is diluted from 1:600 to 1:1000 and phenol disinfectant is diluted from 1:100 to 1:120. Their bactericidal activity is determined against Acinetobacter spp suspension. Subcultures are performed from both the test disinfectant i.e. bacillocid and phenol at intervals of 5, 10, 15 and 20 minutes. The plates are incubated for 48-72 hours at 37 °C. The dilution of disinfectant, which disinfects the suspension in a given time is divided by that dilution of phenol, which disinfects the suspension in same time, determines its phenol coefficient.
