Virkon™ S

Virkon™ S is a scientific breakthrough with performance characteristics that have defined biosecurity standards. Not surprisingly, Virkon™ S is the choice of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations and governments worldwide to secure biosecurity and strengthen emergency disease control (EDC) contingency planning. The Australian and New Zealand governments’ AUSVETPLAN is probably the best regarded EDC reference source. Virkon™ S continues to be the only branded disinfectant referred to in the 2008 AUSVETPLAN, stating that “Virkon™ S is a modern disinfectant with outstanding virucidal properties.”
