Bactericidal Performance

The photo below demonstrates that cell walls of bacteria, Bacillus subtilis, are hydrolyzed by enzymatic action and that cell membranes are broken due to osmotic pressure within the bacteria.
The graph below shows bactericidal performance of the HEPA filter media with and without immobilized lytic enzyme.
Spores of bacteria such as Bacillus or Clostridium are not dissolved by the enzyme, however, such spores remain no growth in a filter due to dormancy period.  Once spores are in a growing phase enzyme filter dissolves vegetative bacteria.
