Comparison of heat- and alcohol- based disinfection. aE. coli and bM. smegmatis bacterial cultures were treated with heat (70 °C and 80 °C for 5 and 10 min), ethanol (75% and 85% for 0.5 and 1 min) and propan-2-ol (75% and 85% for 0.5 and 1 min), followed by CFU plating on respective agar media. Untreated culture controls were plated in parallel [****p < 0.0001 obtained from one-way ANOVA with Bonferroni post-test correction]. c Representative image of B. stearothermophilus spore strips exposed to heat (90 °C/30 min), 85% ethanol (1 min) and 85% propan-2-ol (1 min) inoculated in BHI media. Each experiment was performed at least two times with three biological replicates
