Item Number: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be kept inside a locked cabinet located at site ██. Human subjects interacting with SCP-XXXX are required to wear fresh, hospital grade gloves as to prevent (distraction) in SCP-XXXX’s area of detection.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a 2 litre bottle of Coles Lemon scented Bleach, obtained in Ipswich Australia from a Mrs. [REDACTED] following an incident in which XXXX was witnessed displaying its anomalous properties at a local state school. The date of manufacture is labelled as █/█/██ with a best by date of █/█/██. Whether or not SCP-XXXX loses its anomalous properties past this date is so far untested.

SCP-XXXX’s anomalous properties surface when SCP-XXXX is exposed to concentrated levels of bacteria and Mold, with stronger responses being reported when biomass levels exceed a surface area of 25,000 microns (2.5 cm). SCP-XXXX has a measured detection range of approximately 5 cubic metres. Upon detection, and provided that a human subject loosens the safety cap, SCP- XXXX will release a concentrated solution of Sodium Hypochlorite. SCP-XXXX is recorded to direct its path of flow directly to the greatest source of microbiological concentration, even ascending vertical surfaces such as Fibreglass shower walls to reach (prey).

After dissolving all available microbiota in its detection range, SCP-XXXX returns to its bottle without the need of staff assistance.

Trials involving Class D Personnel were conducted, with test subjects being exposed to a controlled growth of the fungi Penicillium. Staff witnessed as SCP-XXXX (fed) on the Mold, leaving the test subjects unharmed, with no signs of skin bleaching, burns, or the side effects of chlorine vapour inhalation.

Ammendum XXXX-1: As of █/█/██ SCP-XXXX has not displayed any of the defining characteristics of a sentient organism, displaying feeding traits more like that of an amoeba. Previous tests were not conducted as to determine whether XXXX can differentiate between seperate pathogen types, and subsequently whether it has dietary preferences. If SCP-XXXX does in fact select its food source, this also creates unanswered questions as to if it has control over what matter it dissolves.
