Hello,

Following your message on Facebook, I think your contributions are worthy. Take this one, for instance. It is a good start. Would you bring more content ?

Also, I think it would be interesting to start adding some structure to it.


I. Typology of decontamination techniques

II. Typology of bactericides


III. Example of uses


etc.

Title change?

The article seems to deal more with "sterilization" rather than decontamination. Is a title change in order? -Richard Pettitt 19:00, 4 January 2008 (CST)

I agree, although "decontamination" is appropriate when dealing with the products of a laboratory accident or biological weapon. It does need to be disambiguated from chemical and radiological decontamination. Howard C. Berkowitz 18:35, 25 September 2008 (CDT)
