International Journal of Hygiene and Environmental Medicine, vol 195, pg.357-365 (1994): "When comparing the effect profile of the new antimicrobial substances Glucoprotamin with that of the known antimicrobial substances available in the market, glucoprotamin is quite similar to the two aldehydes - formaldehyde and glutaraldehyde; however, it is clearly better then QAC, beguanides and phenol derivates."
