Zagro Asia strengthens biosecurity programme

With the increasing number of African Swine Fever (ASF) cases in various Asian, African and European countries, Zagro commissioned CISA, a European Union reference laboratory for ASF since 2002, for an independent evaluation of Ultraxide against the ASF virus. The Spain-based laboratory has evaluated in accordance with the EN 14675 test method, modified to enable testing against the ASF virus.

The company said that the results confirmed Ultraxide's effectiveness against ASF at 1:300, 1:200, and at 1:100 dilution rate at the five minute exposure time.

In addition to the ASF virus, Ultraxide has also tested effectively against the H5N1 virus and various coronavirus strains. The disinfectant is approved for use in various countries including Australia, Thailand, the Philippines, Malaysia, Sri Lanka and more.

Zagro’s farm hygiene range

Ultraxide is just one of Zagro’s wide range of highly active disinfectants registered and distributed in various countries. Zagro offers Kleenguard, which contains Alkyl benzyl dimethyl ammonium chloride. It’s a potentiated disinfectant that can kill a wide range of bacteria, mould, yeasts and protozoa.

Another multi-action disinfectant is Ultraxide Plus which has a blend of different types of quaternary ammonium compounds, glutaraldehyde and plant extract. For additional efficacy, the plant extract is added for its antiseptic, antiviral and bactericidal activity.
