MS Megades Novo from MS Schippers has passed independent tests for combatting African swine fever.
MS Schippers said that it has invested in the knowledge and application of disinfectants against the ASF virus. The company said that MS Megades Novo is the only effective tool on the market that does not damage materials, such as the paintwork of trucks.
MS Megades Novo is a foaming, powerful disinfectant that is approved for the control of bacteria, yeasts and viruses in housing and means of transport. It has a number of components that come from the medical world and human food industry.
The drug effectivness was examined by two independent institutes. It has been known for some time that the product eliminates bacteria and viruses completely at a dosage of 0.75% and with a soaking time of five minutes.
The Pirbright Institute in the UK recently tested its effectiveness against the ASF virus. The tests showed that at a dosage of 0.25% the drug killed more than 99% of this virus, also at 4 degrees Celsius and five minutes of exposure.
MS Schippers said these results show that MS Megades Novo has a proven track record in the control of the ASF.
