Looking for the magic antimicrobial agent...

Has anybody an idea if this chemical exists? It should:

- kill bacteria, of course
- be active for days
- not chemically modify proteins and peptides
- have no or only very small UV-absorption down to 180 nm
- not alter the stability or structure of proteins (so adding 20%
Ethanol is also excluded)

The purpose of it all?
A friend of mine is investigating the very slow aggregation process of a
protein, and he wants to measure CD spectra to monitor this process.
Unfortunately he cannot really prepare the samples sterile, and after
some days he has more bacteria in them than aggregates...

TIA, Frank
