Efficacy Against SARS-CoV-2
Learn about Peroxigard®’s historically proven efficacy against SARS-CoV-2, the virus which causes COVID-19 disease
The April 2020 issue of LASPro Magazine focused on the topic of cleaning and disinfection in wet vs. dry facilities.
Optimize safety with application and dilution equipment specifcally designed for use with Peroxigard® technologies.
Where can I use Peroxigard®?
- Walls, floors, and ceilings
- Chairs, doorknobs, access control buttons, faucets, rails
- Lab equipment
- Cell phones, computers
- During cage changes
- During hood/biosafety cabinet work
- Floor scrubbing machines
- Gloved hands
- Soak enrichment toys/devices/water valves/post-surgical tools
- Spray items coming in or out of areas
- Transport containers/vehicles
Is Peroxigard® effective against parasites? (Giardia, Cryptospordium, etc.)
Due to EPA and FDA regulations, disinfectants cannot claim to be effective against parasites. As a result of the restrictions, Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide® products do not carry a claim to inactivate parasites. However, the Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide® surfactant package and superior cleaning abilities can help remove parasite eggs from surfaces and sequentially reduce the chance of transmission.
What is the difference between Peroxigard® Ready-To-Use and concentrate?
The Ready-To-Use product is a different formula than the Concentrate solution. Therefore, the Concentrate solution cannot simply be diluted to achieve the same contact times, efficacy claims, etc. as the Ready-To-Use. Overall, the solutions should be treated as different products with differing use instructions. For example, the Ready-To-Use solution has a 1 minute contact time for disinfection claims, while the Peroxigard Concentrate solution has a contact time as low as 5 minutes depending on the dilution.
Will there be an adverse reaction if other disinfectant products are used on surfaces previously cleaned with Peroxigard®?
No. The only active ingredient in Peroxigard™ disinfectant products is low levels of hydrogen peroxide. Hydrogen peroxide readily breaks down into oxygen and water once dry and no active residues will remain. Furthermore, on a dry surface, there will be no adverse reactions if a second disinfectant were to be applied. Overall, best practice is to utilize one chemistry in the facility for disinfection requirements to ensure compliance.
