Biosenta disinfectant kills 100% of moulds, fungi, bacteria and viruses


Company claims the as yet unnamed disinfectant will kill Ebola and Enterovirus D68

Biosenta, a Canadian developer of chemical compounds for domestic and industrial applications using advanced nanotechnology, reports that independent laboratory research testing on the physical/chemical properties and efficacy of its most advanced household disinfectant has found that it is effective in killing 100% of potentially deadly moulds and fungi, and a wide range of bacteria and viruses, on hard surfaces.

According to the US Center for Disease Control (CDC), the new disinfectant, which has yet to be given a name, will kill Ebola and Enterovirus D68. This is based on laboratory tests that prove the new disinfectant kills the Polio virus which is similar in cell structure to Ebola and Enterovirus D68.

The new disinfectant uses advanced nanotechnology to create compounds that have a significantly lower concentration of active ingredients which have several significant benefits including a lower toxicity, the company says. A lower toxicity means that the new disinfectant can be safely used in the kitchen as well as the bathroom and living areas. The new disinfectant is both a safe and powerful disinfectant and cleaner yet safe for daily use.

Dene Rogers, President and CEO of Biosenta, based in Toronto, said: 'Our new disinfectant represents the future of disinfectants and cleaners because it is both powerful, and kills 100% of potentially deadly bacteria and viruses, and it is safe to use anywhere, including the kitchen and even in a baby's room.

'The new disinfectant is one of several new and advanced formulations that Biosenta will have approved in the US and Canada. Other products will include a hand sanitiser and wipes.'

Ongoing testing of additional bacteria and viruses will be completed by the middle of next month.
