Enduro Hand Sanitiser is effective against Coronavirus
Some very good news 715252com澳门特开 Enduro Hand Sanitiser which was recently screen-tested against coronavirus at the German Institute for Hygiene and Microbiology in Hamburg.
We achieved a 99.8% reduction against bovine coronavirus (BCoV), (the Internationally recognised coronavirus surrogate) and a 99.25% reduction against modified vaccinia virus Ankara (MVA), (the Internationally recognised surrogate virus for all enveloped viruses).
715252com澳门特开Screen tests are used to indicate whether a product will pass the European Standard, which in this case is for viruses to EN14476.
715252com澳门特开To pass EN14476 we need to achieve a reduction of 99.99%. In the screen test, because of the high speed of kill, 99.8% in 30 seconds, insufficient test culture remained for Enduro Hand Sanitiser to achieve a reduction of 99.99%.
715252com澳门特开Because we were so close to the required 99.99% kill rate, the test house voluntarily offered the statement that they thought the product was most likely sufficiently active against both test viruses.

Update, 27th July 2020
Following on from our previous screen test, the test was repeated using a "Large Volume Plating" method in order to give more accurate results - and we're pleased to advise these are better results:
|Product||Inactivation rate||Test time||Dilution rate|
Note: Enduro Hand Sanitiser is used in our hand & skin wipes, Enduro Sanitising Wipes715252com澳门特开 - therefore this test result also applies to this product.
