Virocid® Tested Against PEDv at 1:400 (1/3 oz/gal) at an EPA Accredited Lab

US - Porcine epidemic diarrhoea virus (PED virus or PEDV) is a coronavirus that infects the cells lining the small intestine of a pig, causing porcine epidemic diarrhoea, a condition of severe diarrhoea and dehydration, says CID Lines.

Older hogs mostly get sick and lose weight after being infected, whereas newborn piglets usually die within five days of contracting the virus.

The PED virus terrorises the US and Canada and keeps on mutating. Virocid® leads the way to keep it healthy and clean.

Virocid was tested against this PED virus and passed successfully at 1:400, tests were done by an EPA accredited lab.

In today's production world, an efficient and continuous disinfection is a top priority. An ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure.

Where Virocid is being correctly applied (after a thorough cleaning with a CID LINES' detergent), bacteria, viruses, fungi and spores have no chance.

The bactericidal, virucidal, fungicidal and sporicidal effect of Virocid is unique in the world and is safe for people, animals and their environment at in use dilutions.

The worldwide success of Virocid is based on the unique synergism of this characteristics:

  • "broad spectrum " disinfectant
  • highly efficient to kill bacteria, spores, viruses and fungi
  • residual action
  • no resistance encountered
  • very low dilution rate
  • extremely economical cost- in-use
  • versatile usage: spraying, foaming, fogging, booth dips, wheel dips
  • active at all temperatures
  • effective in hard water (even sea water)
  • effective in presence of organic matter
  • safe for equipment (neutral pH) and environment-friendly

Virocid offers at least twice as much protection than any other disinfectant. So it’s not surprising at all that Virocid is the number one disinfectant in the world of pig production.

Virocid is more economical (thanks to its low dilution rates). It is also offering a wide application range for the daily disinfection in the areas for animal production, food processing, foot dips, vehicle disinfection (non-corrosive in dilution) etc.
