APPLICATIONS The core product F10SC VETERINARY DISINFECTANT is a high performance surface acting biocidal compound and due to its inherently low toxicity and low irritation characteristics is widely used within the veterinary profession in companion and large animal practices, referral hospitals, zoo’s, laboratories, and various other institutions. It is used in numerous applications, i.e. cold sterilisation of instruments and equipment including endoscopes, intravenous catheters, and endotracheal tubes; high level disinfection of hard surfaces and air spaces, water treatment, and as a sanitising rinse for solid food and fruit. Fogging with F10SC VETERINARY DISINFECTANT, (a spray of fine mist-like droplets) has been shown to be 100% effective in eliminating airborne micro-organisms.

ANTIMICROBIAL ACTION The antimicrobial action mechanism of the F10 branded disinfectants is taken from each component separately but in addition is due to the additive synergistic action of all components combined.

Bactericidal tests have been carried out in accordance with SANS 636-2001 – Standard (South African) having a performance pass criteria of >log3 reduction in microbial counts, the AFNOR Standard (French)which is a>log4 reduction inmicrobial counts, the European Union EN Standard which is a >log5 reduction in microbial counts, and the AOAC Standard (USA) which is a >log6 (1,000,000 times) reduction in microbial counts. MIC in-vitro tests have shown significant depth of performance as indicated. Generally testing was carried out at ambient temperatures with the exception of EN Standard tests where some were carried out at low temperatures 10o C and some DEFRA tests at 4o C. The EN Standard for low temperatures is 10o C and at this temperatures bactericidal performance was equal to that at ambient temperatures , however there was a significant fall off in performance at 4o C. Other tests carried out at elevated temperatures of 45o C showed a significant increase in performance.

Fungicidal tests have been carried out in accordance with SANS 636-2001,AFNOR and EN Standards which require a log3 and log4 reduction in microbial counts respectively.

Virucidal tests have been carried out in accordance with various internationally accepted protocols by the UPFaculty of Veterinary Science’s Department of Poultry Diseases, the Department of Veterinary Tropical Diseases and the ARC – Onderstepoort Veterinary Institute. The FMDV test was carried in accordance with the DEFRA (UK) Standard (F10CL General Farm Disinfectant only). Test requirements called for log4 and log 5 reduction in microbial counts.

Sporicidal tests have been carried out in accordance with EN 13704-2002, 13697- 2001 and 1650-1997 Standards which required a log5 reduction in microbial counts.
