Rely+On™ Virkon™
Rely+On™ Virkon™ broad spectrum disinfectant is ideal for the cleaning and disinfecting of hard non-porous surfaces. It is not only proven effective against common disease-causing pathogens that affect human health such as, Norovirus, Influenza virus, Salmonella enterica and Campylobacter jejuni, but also it is efficacious against prevalent hospital and food-borne pathogens such as MRSA, VRE and RSV, Hepatitis A Virus and E. coli 0157:H7.

MRSA: Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus
VRE: Vancomycin-Resistant Enterococcus faecalis
RSV: Respiratory Syncytial Virus
Rely+On™ Virkon™ SARS-CoV-2 Efficacy
Rely+On™ Virkon™ broad spectrum disinfectant demonstrates extremely rapid efficacy against SARS-CoV-2, the virus responsible for COVID-19.
The efficacy testing was undertaken by Microbac Laboratories, Inc. in the USA, in accordance with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) compliant test methods, for products intended for virucidal hard surface disinfection, under high soiling conditions.
Rely+On™ Virkon™ achieved rapid and complete inactivation of the SARS-CoV-2 virus at a dilution ratio of 1:100 in just 60 seconds.
Tested on the SARS-CoV-2 virus, COVID-19
What is Rely+On™ Virkon™ virucidal disinfectant?
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.
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 considered 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.*
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.

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.

* Not for use for the disinfection of medical devices.

** Users should always check for compatibility with any sensitive materials before use. Do not use on any soft metals such as brass or copper.

Not recommended for use on soft furnishings, textiles or carpets.

Cleaning and disinfecting hard non-porous food contact surfaces
Remove gross dirt and prepare a 1% solution according to the dilution table. Apply to surface using a sponge and a spray device, until the surface is visibly clean. Let stand for 10 minutes and rinse with potable water.
How to prepare and use a Rely+On™ Virkon™ disinfectant solution
Easy to prepare. Readily soluble in warm tap water, Rely+On™ Virkon™ dissolves into a pink solution, which 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).
