Rely+On Virkon

The broad spectrum formulation of Rely+On™ Virkon™ is unique. No other disinfectant has the same powerful composition or extensive portfolio of performance and safety testing data. It combines application flexibility with broad spectrum efficacy, on hard surfaces, and in the face of organic challenge. These qualities make Rely+On™ Virkon™ the disinfectant of choice for use in medical facilities, pathology and biosafety containment laboratories, treatment salons and residential homes.

Superior Operator Safety Profile

Rely+On™ Virkon™ has fewer handling and use constraints than many other disinfectant products and is not classified as harmful or a sensitiser in both powdered form and in-use dilutions, in accordance with EU legislation on the classification and labelling of chemical preparations.


Environmental Profile

Rely+On™ Virkon™ oxygen-based chemistry contains simple organic salts and organic acids and the active ingredient decomposes by a variety of routes within the environment, in soil and water, breaking down to form the naturally occurring substances, potassium salts and oxygen. The major organic components are classified as readily biodegradable according to OECD and EU tests. Rely+On™ Virkon™ is not classified as R53* and is not persistent in the environment, according to the standard European process for the classification and labelling of chemical preparations. Independent studies have shown that diluted Rely+On™ Virkon™ should not, when used as directed, pose any threat to sewage treatment facilities.

*may cause long term adverse effects in the aquatic environment.


Mode of Action

Rely+On™ Virkon™ oxidizes key structures and compounds, such as proteins, leading to widespread, irreversible damage and subsequent deactivation/ destruction of the microorganism. There is no evidence to suggest that bacterial disease-causing organisms develop resistance towards Rely+On™ Virkon™ as opposed to some other disinfectant types.

Proven Broad Spectrum Efficacy
Independently proven highly effective against:
• over 100 strains of virus in 22 viral families
• over 400 strains of bacteria
• over 60 strains of fungi and yeast
using a wide variety of contact times, temperatures and organic challenge levels.

Hard Surface & Equipment Cleaning & Disinfection

The level of disease-causing organisms present after general cleaning can remain high enough to offer a serious disease challenge to patients and staff. Using a disinfectant proven to be effective against viruses, bacteria and fungi, such as Rely+On™ Virkon™, is essential.

Easy to Prepare

Readily soluble in tap water, Rely+On™ Virkon™ dissolves into a pink solution, which activates within 5 minutes and remains stable for up to 5 days, as a 1:100 solution. Consult your local representative for advice on stability for any alternate strength solutions.

Unused or inactive solutions may be disposed of via the sink (leading to waste water treatment facilities and in accordance with local regulations).
