The aim of the presented study was determined the effectiveness of sporicidal activity the peracetic acid and the hydrogen peroxide against B. anthracis spores. In the investigations was used B. anthracis stain "Sterne" 34F2. As inactivators were applied 0,5 % natriumthiosulphate and catalase. The obtained results show that the sporicidal effect of studied substances depends from their concentration and operates time. 5% water solution of peracetic acid shows the full sporicidal activity after outflow 120 minutes and the hydrogen peroxide about concentration 30% after outflow 180 minutes. However the hydrogen peroxide.
