11) Virkon® S is the multipurpose virucidal disinfectant in Pigeons by Racing Pigeon Laboratory Testing

Virkon® S is the multipurpose virucidal disinfectant with the greatest numbers of EPA-registered

claims against pathogens affecting domestic and companion animals.

 

Overview

Virkon® S is a balanced, stabilized blend of peroxygen compounds,

surfactant, organic acids, and inorganic buffer. Virkon® S is recommended for

use as a hard surface disinfectant in livestock production and transportation

facilities. Virkon® S delivers 99.9999% kill of numerous pathogens including

31 bacterial strains, 58 viruses, and 6 fungi with no evidence of resistance,

eliminating the need to rotate disinfectants to avoid resistance buildup.
