The 2nd annual Infection Control, Sterilization & Decontamination in Healthcare Congress was held on 21 and 22 March in London with some 150 delegates in attendance. Graham Stanton spoke about the new English HTM guidance. He said the CFPP document title was causing confusion and needed changing. When discussing protein detection, he said that traditional methods of detection were not sensitive enough. Referring to the TSE guidance and in particular Part 4, he stated that para's C3 and C4 were the driver for change. He also stated that the protein level should not be seen as absolute and that continuous improvement is required.
