Virox Technologies announced that its Intervention Farm Disinfectant-Cleaner Concentrate has been approved by the Environmental Protection Agency for use against African Swine Fever virus (ASFv).
Virox said its goal is to ensure that customers are protected against the threat of emerging disease outbreaks, and the addition of the ASFv claim provides confidence that Intervention will be highly effective in the event of an outbreak in North America.
José Ramirez, lead science advisor at Virox Animal Health, said, “Even the small number of formulated products that have demonstrated efficacy against the virus through direct data are difficult to handle and suffer from less-than ideal occupational safety and environmental profiles.”
When used as directed, Intervention is non-toxic, non-irritating and readily biodegradable. In addition, its strong cleaning capabilities, ease of application and superior surface coverage make it an excellent choice for everyday use. In the case of ASFv, Intervention concentrate should be applied for a contact time of ten minutes at a 1:64 dilution, Virox said.
Virox Technologies has been formulating disinfectants against pathogens for more than 20 years. As the creators of the Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide (AHP) technology behind Intervention, the company is committed to providing safer, more sustainable solutions to support a wide range of industries in building robust infection prevention programs.
