An anti-viral and anti-bacterial aerosol spray developed in the UK has reportedly been proven to kill the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, which causes Covid-19, with 100% efficacy.
The Biosan Sanitiser Aerosol was created by Genesis Biosciences in its Cardiff laboratories and follows in the footsteps of the company’s Biosan Total-Release Sanitiser, which delivered the anti-viral and anti-bacterial solution to large areas via a pressurised canister.
The multi-use sanitiser aerosol contains the same solution in a handheld spray, suitable for quick and effective disinfection of areas, including within hospitality venues. The product is designed to leave behind no residue and therefore there is no requirement to wipe down surfaces after use.
The liquid within the aerosol, which has a citrus fragrance, has been tested according to BS EN 14476:2013 and A2:2019 and is said to have been proven to have broad range efficacy against bacteria and viruses and effectively kill harmful pathogens.
Genesis regulatory specialist Dr Phil Caunt said: “All of our anti-viral products are proven to be effective against the Covid-19-causing coronavirus. Sanitisation is key to being able to maintain a high level of cleanliness keeping employees, visitors and the general public as safe as possible.
“Genesis’ Biosan Aerosol products – which include the multi-use spray and total-release aerosol – offer a simple and effective method of disinfection, delivering an anti-viral and antibacterial solution to both specific areas and wider spaces. Both can be used in a range of industries such as hospitality, leisure, transport and education as well as by individuals within their home or when out and about, offering protection and peace of mind.”
The Biosan Sanitiser Aerosol is manufactured in accordance with recognised international ISO standards and comes in 500ml canisters which can be purchased in packs of 12.
