H202 and tube cleanliness and test methods

Hello, I’m trying to confirm an assumption on the effects of hydrogen peroxide on medical tube cleanliness.  I’m looking for general insights as well as suggested testing methods.

If only clean hydrogen peroxide flows through a medical grade tube, how often would the tube need to be replaced to maintain the efficacy of the H2O2 without (or with minimal) risk of introducing contaminants (bacteria or microbes or other)?  Or would the H2O2 effectively clean the tube of itself?  If you assume H2O2 concentration as well as cumulative flow rate to be important variables, please share.

Any and all insights much appreciated.  Thank you.
