Abstract: This chapter considers the description and role of standards in decontamination, with specific detail on the different types of standards and how they are published, the relationship of these standards to law and guidance documents, how requirements in standards are generated and incorporated into standards development and how practitioners can influence the content of standards.
PCR: The Right Way to Decontaminate and Eliminate False Positives Published April 9, PCR is highly sensitive, but the downside of that very property is that it makes the technique prone to producing false-positives. In labs where PCR is a staple, like the one I work in, any false-positives are more often than not due to amplicon.
The focus of Handbook for Cleaning/Decontamination of Surfaces lies on cleaning and decontamination of surfaces and solid matter, hard as well as soft.

Decontamination is a term used to describe a process or treatment that renders a medical device, instrument, or environmental surface safe to handle. Sterilization, disinfection, and antisepsis are all forms of decontamination. Contaminated instruments and other medical devices are sources of microorganisms to which personnel can expose through nicks, cuts, abrasions in the skin or contact with the mucous membranes of the eyes, nose, or mouth.

This book describes various methods of decontamination and how the methods work. There is a discussion of the various cleaning and disinfection methods utilized, along with details of how to qualify these methods.
It also describes new technologies that may be useful in the battle for decontamination across industries. Step 1: Set Up the Decontamination and Support Areas.
