Wexford Labs has generated data showing its CleanCide (EPA # 34810-35), RTU Thymo-Cide (EPA # 34810-25) and Wex-Cide 128 (EPA # 34810-31) are effective against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19 at 60 seconds. According to the data, the wipes demonstrated a 3-log reduction against the virus. The wipes were tested in compliance with “Disinfectants for Use on Environmental Surfaces, Guidance for Efficacy Testing,” the EPA’s threshold for deeming a disinfectant effective.(The data is intended to be submitted to the EPA for review to include claims of disinfection against the virus on the label.)
Microbac Laboratories, Inc., an independent laboratory that performs environmental, food, and life science testing for businesses, performed the efficacy testing using a multi-step process. First, the lab applied the virus to a surface and let it dry. The liquid test substance was then applied directly to the dried virus. After the contact time, the lab recovered the neutralized liquid and applied the liquid to cultured host cells and was incubated. The remaining viable cells (if any) indicated how effective the liquid was in inactivating the virus.
