Ecolab Virasept™ Ready to Use Disinfectant


Ecolab’s patented, peracid mixture, ready-to-use cleaner, deodorizer and hospital disinfectant is an all-in-one sporicide, virucide, bactericide, tuberculocide and fungicide.  It is effective against a broad spectrum of organisms, including Clostridioides difficile (c. diff) endospores, Candida auris*, Legionella pneumophila*, Listeria monocytogenes* as well as Staphylococcus aureus and Pseudomonas aeruginosa biofilms* and a list of other tough-to-control fungi and pathogens. It is also included on the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) List N: Disinfectants for Use Against SARS-CoV-2.1 

First EPA Approval for Biofilm Disinfection in Drains

Because they are wet, drains are a high-risk environment for biofilm growth and a vector for hospital-associated infections2 (HAIs) and recently published studies have identified sink drains as potentially important reservoirs for antibiotic-resistant organisms.3,4 When applied with a foamer, ViraseptTM is EPA Registered to kill Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Staphylococcus aureus biofilms* in drains with a 5-minute contact time.
