Disinfecting Solution

A Comprehensive Approach to Infection Control through Premise Disinfection & Water Treatment

oxine-ah1Bio-Cide International Inc. has invested many years of research in optimizing sanitation solutions for animal facilities. Oxine is an outstanding sanitizer specially designed to meet the needs of our customers who desire broad-spectrum biocidal profile. Animal production is an inherently bacteria-rich environment with a processing cycle that is exposed to re-contamination. Oxine is a chlorine dioxide based product which is recognized as the most potent molecule in rapid elimination of pathogens and the biofilms that protect them. Oxine is proven effective at all phases of production and has been demonstrated to be more effective than other common sanitizers including quats, iodophors and chlorine.

With emergence of highly virulent stains of pathogens, growers are concerned more than ever with getting their stock infected. Reducing the exposure of potential pathogens is an essential element in producing healthy animal stock. A healthy stock results in higher production rates and yields higher feed conversion ratios. Sound breeding management coupled with a good sanitation program, can lessen the chances of disease thereby reducing the reliance on antibiotic treatment.

oxine-ah2Oxine is a highly refined blend of Stabilized Chlorine Dioxide. Oxine destroys microorganisms by chemically oxidizing their molecular components. Oxine combined with its activator provides a controlled release of ClO2.

Oxine is also very effective in the control of malodors by eliminating the odor causing bacteria or compound at the surface.

Specific Pathogens

Oxine is an effective virucide against the following pathogens when used at 500 ppm activated use solution with a ten minute contact time:

  • Avian Infuenza A Virus (H3N2)
  • Canine Parvovirus
  • Newcastle Disease Virus (NDV)
  • Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Disease Syndrome Virus(PRRS)
  • Pseudorabies Virus

Oxine Versus Chlorine

Oxine is Better than Chlorine    

  • Much greater antimicrobial efficacy
  • More organic-load bearing capability
  • Does not impart offensive odor or taste to drinking water
  • Less corrosive to equipment
  • Works in a wider pH range, (hypochlorites typically lose biocidal efficacy above pH 7; whereas Oxine  is effective pH range of 3-10, providing microbial control during pH swings in incoming water)
  • Does not create toxic THM’s
  • Safer for workers and the environment
  • 2.6 times more powerful oxidizing capacity than Chlorine
  • Requires much lower use solution than hypochlorites
  • Removes biofilm more effectively
