|Pseudomonas aeruginosa – ATCC 27853||A dilution of 1/1000 or 0,1 % F10SC|
|Escherichia coli – ATCC 25922||A dilution of 1/4000 or 0,025 % F10SC|
|Staphylococcus aureus – ATCC 25923||A dilution of 1/16000 or 0,00625 % F10SC|
|Klebsiella pneumoniae – ATCC 10031||A dilution of 1/4000 or 0,025 % F10SC|
|Staphylococcus aureus -MRSA Local isolate||A dilution of 1/16000 or 0,00625 % F10SC|
|Pasteurella multocida – Local isolate||A dilution of 1/16000 or 0,00625 % F10SC|

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 reductions 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.
CONCENTRATIONS AND CONTACT TIMES
Concentrations and contact times are indicated on each product label. It should be noted that additional tests were carried out to determine the various speed of kill rates to meet varying application demands.
Bactericidal test standard contact times are generally 5 minutes. However, it was found that a log3 reduction in gram-positive bacteria was achieved in 30 seconds and similarly 60 seconds for gram-negative bacteria all at a concentration of 1:500 of the F10SC Veterinary Disinfectant. In the AOAC test, a log6 reduction was achieved in both gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria in a 10 minutes contact time.
DOSAGE AND DIRECTIONS FOR USE
For F10SC VETERINARY DISINFECTANTS clear away debris and rinse surfaces, then apply as below :
– Environmental general disinfection dilute 1:500 (2 ml / l water)
– High-level disinfection (including fungal spores) dilute 1:250 (4 ml / l water)
– Resistant viruses and bacterial spores dilute 1:100 (10 ml / l water)
– Sterilisation of instruments/equipment dilute 1:100 (10 ml / l water)
Additional information is available in application user guidelines. For other products refer to each specific product label.
Studies were carried out by a GLP laboratory in accordance with OECD and EPA guidelines.
