New Coronavirus results for our infection control products
More of our products have now been screen tested and shown to be effective against Coronavirus.
The following infection control products have been independently tested by the Dr Brill & Dr Steinmann Institute for Hygiene and Microbiology in Germany against Bovine Coronavirus (BCoV), the recognised viral surrogate for COVID-19 - and we're pleased to advise they all gained excellent results:
|Product||Inactivation rate||Test time||Dilution rate|
|>99.99%||30 seconds||20% (1:19)|
|>99.99%||30 seconds||1 tablet in 500ml water|
To be classed as COVID-19 virucidal the result must be equal to or greater than log 4 (99.99%).
In respect to our other products' efficacy against COVID-19:
- Endurocide Virucidal: this product has been fully virucidally tested and is classed as being effective against both non-enveloped viruses such as Norovirus and enveloped viruses including Coronavirus. As such, further testing against BCoV is not necessary to validate claims of efficacy against COVID-19.
- Endurocide Antimicrobial & Sporicidal Curtains: the liquid used to treat our curtains has been tested against enveloped viruses H1N1 Swine Flu and the Measles virus. It s generally regarded that if a product is effective against one type of enveloped virus, it will also be effective against others - including Coronavirus. As such, further testing against BCoV is not necessary to validate claims of efficacy against COVID-19.
- Enduro Sanitising Wipes: Enduro Hand Sanitiser is used to impregnate our Enduro Sanitising Wipes; therefore the >99.99% result for BCoV above also applies to this product.
- QFD: screen testing against BCoV is currently being carried out and results are expected in around two weeks.
