Ultraxide is a modern pleasant smelling disinfectant for eliminating disease-causing microorganisms. It is a combination of Glutaraldehyde and Quaternary Ammonium compounds. It kills all 17 classes of viruses, bacteria, protozoa (Coccidia), mycoplasma (CRD), and fungi which are both harmful to man and animals. It ensures hygiene in houses for poultry, cattle, pigs, brooders, and slaughterhouses. It can be used even on wet and muddy surfaces. Ultraxide is also a water sterilant.
Ultraxide is a highly effective disinfectant (composition) formulated as a protection against the spread of contagious animal diseases which can be acquired from contaminated poultry hatcheries, livestock buildings, feed, and farm equipment, slaughterhouses, processing plants, and others.

Why Ultraxide is Used in Coronavirus(Covid-19)
COVID-19 virus infection is spreading very fast around the world, infecting THOUSANDS of people and causing death to many people. The virus is primarily spread via respiratory droplets from coughing and sneezing. Droplets stay suspended in the air for only a short time but may stay viable and contagious for many days on metal, glass, or plastic surfaces. Therefore, disinfecting all surfaces is very important to prevent the spread of this deadly disease, which Ultraxide can ensure.

Ultraxide for Coronavirus
Disclaimer: Ultraxide has been proven effective against various strains of the coronavirus family, but Zagro has yet to test its efficacy against the Wuhan coronavirus.
The coronavirus that first started in China near the end of 2019 has now spread to more than 20 countries, including Singapore.
The Wuhan Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) is a new coronavirus strain that caused cases of severe pneumonia and even lead to the death of more than 300 infected patients. The number of confirmed cases worldwide already surpassed the recorded number of SARS patients in 2003.
Human-to-human transmission of the Wuhan coronavirus is confirmed, but there’s still no confirmation from which animal it originated. The 2019-nCov is a zoonotic disease, which means the disease is transferred from animals to humans. There’s a suspicion that like SARS, the Wuhan coronavirus also originated from bats and then passed it on to snakes, then to humans.
Countries worldwide are implementing restrictions to stop the spread of the virus. Maintaining hygiene standards is now more important than ever. Implementing strict biosecurity solutions should be prioritized in every industry, including agriculture, transport, food and beverages, manufacturing, and more.
ULTRAXIDE is an effective disinfectant that works as a protection against the spread of contagious animal and human diseases caused by viruses that belong to the Coronavirus family, similar to the current spread of the nCoV-2019, more popularly known as Wuhan Coronavirus.
A formulation with a combination of Benzalkonium chloride and Glutaraldehyde, Ultraxide is an effective disinfectant that works as a protection against the spread of contagious animal and human diseases from viruses that belong to the Coronavirus family.
The formula is non-corrosive and has minimal environmental residues and low toxicity levels. It is suitable for all disinfecting systems through spraying directly on surfaces and is stable up to one week after administration.

For African Swine Fever
Ultraxide has been proven effective in inactivating the African Swine Fever (ASF) virus at the dilution rates of 1:300, 1:200, and 1:100 at the exposure time of 5 minutes.
With no cure nor vaccine yet available for ASF, implementing strict farm hygiene maintenance, such as using Ultraxide to disinfect farmhouses, farm equipment, foot, and vehicle baths, transport vehicles, and other systems involved in pig farming, can help prevent and control the spread of ASF. The efficacy of Ultraxide in inactivating the ASF virus has been confirmed not just in a laboratory setup but also in real-life farm settings.
The ASF outbreak continues to affect pig farms in Asia and now poses a global threat to the swine industry. While some provinces previously affected were already cleared of the epidemic, new cases of ASF are occurring in different farming communities in the region.
Classified as a severe viral disease of domestic pigs and wild boars, African Swine Fever originated in Africa but it is now also found in countries in Asia and Europe. Some of the commonly observed ASF symptoms include loss of appetite, fever, abortions for pregnant sows, lack of energy, and internal bleeding.

For Swine Flu
Swine Flu (H1N1 Influenza) caused a global pandemic in 2009 and 2010 and has since infected at least 700 million individuals worldwide.
Recently, China researchers released findings that an emerging new type of swine flu, name G4, could potentially cause a future pandemic. The G4 strain is genetically descended from the H1N1 strain and has already infected 10% of industry workers in China, though there’s no evidence yet that it can be passed from human to human.
As a disinfectant solution that can be applied on high-touch surfaces, Ultraxide can be used against Swine Flu following the recommended dilution rate of 1:200.
Check out the following references for more information about Ultraxide and Swine Flu:
Farm owners, zoo managers, and park administrators need to ensure that they also implement strict hygiene practices to keep bird flu out of their premises.
Keep your flock safe from the most recent avian flu subtype H5N8 virus with Zagro’s Ultraxide. Ultraxide is a high-performing disinfectant proven effective against bird flu. It has been widely used by farming communities in multiple countries during past Avian Influenza outbreaks.
With its synergistic blend of Glutaraldehyde and QAC compound, the formula for Ultraxide achieves a synergistic effect and allows the solution to kill the virus from the inside.
In a test conducted by the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine at Kasetsart University, Ultraxide was proven to be effective against the highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) virus subtype H5N1. The trial study proved that Ultraxide can kill the AI virus within 1 minute of contact time.
