Due to EPA and FDA regulations, disinfectants cannot claim to be effective against parasites. As a result of the restrictions, Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide® products do not carry a claim to inactivate parasites. However, the Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide® surfactant package and superior cleaning abilities, can help remove parasite eggs from surfaces and sequentially reduce the chance of transmission.
The Ready-To-Use product is a different formula than the Concentrate solution. Therefore, the Concentrate solution cannot simply be diluted to achieve the same contact times, efficacy claims, etc. as the Ready-To-Use. Overall, the solutions should be treated as different products with differing use instructions. For example, the Ready-To-Use solution has a 1 minute contact time for disinfection claims, while the Peroxigard Concentrate solution has a contact time as low as 5 minutes depending on the dilution.
No. The only active ingredient in Peroxigard™ disinfectant products is low levels of hydrogen peroxide. Hydrogen peroxide readily breaks down into oxygen and water once dry and no active residues will remain. Furthermore, on a dry surface, there will be no adverse reactions if a second disinfectant were to be applied. Overall, best practice is to utilize one chemistry in the facility for disinfection requirements to ensure compliance.
Peroxigard Wipes carry an EPA-approved label claim for use against C. bovis. As such, Peroxigard Wipes can be used to disinfect against C. bovis, allowing a 2-minute contact time after application.
