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)
