Viruquat 300 passes European (BS EN1276) quantitative suspension test for the evaluation of bactericidal activity of chemical disinfectants and antiseptics used in food production, industrial, domestic and institutional areas at a dilution of 1:750. At this dilution, the bacterial load can be reduced from 1,000,000 to < 10 cells with only 5 min exposure for every one of 4 different problematic bacterial strains. Stringent test conditions (hard water and organic contamination) apply.
