NEW Coronavirus testing just issued
More of our products have now been screen tested 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) - and we're pleased to advise they 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 meet virucidal standard EN 14476, the result must be equal to or greater than log 4 (99.99%).
In respect to our other products' efficacy against coronavirus:
- 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 our virucidal claims.
- 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 is 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 enveloped viruses.
Do please get in touch if you need any further information or explanation of these test reports.
