Virkon® is a disinfectant possessing broad-spectrum virucidal, bactericidal and fungicidal activity. The effectiveness of Virkon® is further enhanced by its excellent detergent properties, so that clean, disease-free surfaces can be achieved. Virkon® is unique in its composition. Its activity is based on a buffered synergized acid peroxygen system containing a high percentage of surfactant. Virkon® can be used on all surfaces and in all situations. Once diluted in a 1% solution, Virkon® is of low toxicity, non-tainting, and non-irritant. Because of its high detergency and mode of action, Virkon® can be used in an exceptional variety of situations for effective cleaning and virucidal disinfection in a single operation. Virkon® can be applied manually or through all types of cleaning and spraying equipment.
Independent studies have demonstrated Virkon™ to be effective against the following five coronaviruses: Canine Coronavirus, Feline Infectious Peritonitis Virus, Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus, Avian Infectious Bronchitis Virus and Transmissible Gastroenteritis Virus. Also for use in veterinary and human hospitals and healthcare facilities, and food processing plants.
