APPLICATIONS
The core product F10SC VETERINARY DISINFECTANT is a high performance surface acting biocidal compound and due to its inherently low toxicity and low irritation characteristics is widely used within the veterinary profession in companion and large animal practices, referral hospitals, zoo’s, laboratories, and various other institutions. It is used in numerous applications, i.e. cold sterilisation of instruments and equipment including endoscopes, intravenous catheters, and endotracheal tubes; high level disinfection of hard surfaces and air spaces, water treatment, and as a sanitising rinse for solid food and fruit. Fogging with F10SC VETERINARY DISINFECTANT, (a spray of fine mist-like droplets) has been shown to be 100% effective in eliminating airborne micro-organisms.
 
F10SCXD VETERINARY DISINFECTANT/CLEANSER is used for hard surface disinfection and cleaning of lightly soiled areas such as kennels and cages.
 
F10SC VETERINARY DISINFECTANT has been successfully used in aerosol fogging applications in the presence of animals as well as a number of clinical
applications including nebulising in respiratory tract Aspergillosis infections, wound irrigation, and nasal flushing.
 
F10 SKIN PREP SOLUTION is a pre-op skin decontaminant.
 
F10 ODOUR ELIMINATOR is a hard surface and aerosol high level disinfectant with a masking pine fragrance.
 
F10 DISINFECTANT AEROSOL & AEROSOL FOGGER is available with on/off and total evacuation actuators for use as a hard surface and air space disinfectant. Tests have shown that aerosol disinfection is an effective method of carrying out high level disinfection of air spaces.
 
F10 WIPES are disinfectant impregnated surface wipes for use on equipment such as thermometers, and for hand decontamination when washing facilities are unavailable.
 
ANTIMICROBIAL ACTION
The antimicrobial action mechanism of the F10 branded disinfectants is taken from each component separately but in addition is due to the additive synergistic action of all components combined.
 
Bactericidal tests have been carried out in accordance with SANS 636-2001 – Standard (South African) having a performance pass criteria of >log3 reduction in microbial counts, the AFNOR Standard (French)which is a>log4 reduction in microbial counts, the European Union EN Standard which is a >log5 reduction in microbial counts, and the AOAC Standard (USA) which is a >log6 (1,000,000 times) reduction in microbial counts. MIC in-vitro tests have shown significant depth of performance as indicated. Generally testing was carried out at ambient temperatures with the exception of EN Standard tests where some were carried out at low temperatures 10o C and some DEFRA tests at 4o C. The EN Standard for low temperatures is 10o C and at this temperatures bactericidal performance was equal to that at ambient temperatures , however there was a significant fall off in performance at 4o C. Other tests carried out at elevated temperatures of 45o C showed a significant increase in performance.

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
Enterococcus faecalis – ATCC 29212 A dilution of 1/16000 or 0,00625 % F10SC

Fungicidal tests have been carried out in accordance with EN1650 AND EN1657, AFNOR  and EN13697-2001, which require a log5 and log4 reduction in microbial counts respectively.

Virucidal tests have been carried out in accordance with various internationally accepted protocols by the UP Faculty 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 log5 reduction in microbial counts.

Sporicidal have been carried out in accordance with EN 13704-2002, Standard which required a log3 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 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 WITH INSECTICIDE 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.
