Disinfection and Biosecurity
F10SC Veterinary Disinfectant

F10SC is a total spectrum disinfectant that, unlike other strong disinfectants on the market, has no adverse side effects on people, animals, or on equipment and surfaces. It is ecologically friendly and biodegradable, and carries a wide range of registrations and approvals from around the world. In Australia, F10SC is registered by the APVMA for use in animal production and housing facilities and is approved by AQIS for use in food export processing as a non-rinse disinfectant.
The benefits of using F10SC include:
  • Kills all types of pathogen – F10SC is bactericidal, virucidal, fungicidal, sporicidal
  • Minimal chance of microbial resistance due to F10SC’s unique benzalkonium chloride and polyhexamethylene biguanide combination of actives and mode of action
  • *Rapid kill times – less than 30 secs for gram positive bacteria, 60 secs for gram negative bacteria, Canine Parvovirus 15 mins (new testing Nov 2012)
  • **Successfully tested against various influenza viruses at a concentration of 1:500 in 10 mins
  • Non-corrosive, non-toxic, non-tainting, non-irritating, aldehyde-free
  • Highly cost effective
  • Biodegradable & ecologically friendly
  • Diluted solution remains active for long periods of time
  • Tried, tested, independently verified and documented, and approved around the world
  • Excellent independent user feedback - in this case 91% of Amazon buyers awarded 5 stars - see www.amazon.com/F10-SC-F10SC-Veterinary-Disinfectant/product-reviews/B00DR25TSG/ref=dp_db_cm_cr_acr_txt?ie=UTF8&showViewpoints=1
Important notice: Beware of imitation F10SC

We are aware of competing products on the Australian market purporting to be the same as F10SC Veterinary Disinfectant, even to the extent of making exactly the same claims at the same dilution rates and contact times. These products are not identical to F10SC and are untested against most bacteria and all viruses, fungi, spores etc. In addition, no safety or toxicity testing has ever been performed on these products. As such, claims replicating F10SC’s performance and safety are completely unfounded. This fact is proven by the recent registration suspension by the APVMA, for the second time, of one of these products. Reasons for suspension include products not being efficacious (not working as advertised) and high variation in the concentrations of active ingredients in the products. Does this sound like something you'd want to risk trying in your particular situation?

In general we would always recommend that all product claims made by disinfectant manufacturers are supported by full testing documentation from independent and accredited laboratories as is the case with F10SC Veterinary Disinfectant.

Like the old saying goes, “if it seems too good to be true it probably is”…
APVMA label

*Note that the APVMA label shows different contact times for bacterial kill, the above times refer to the stronger dilution rate of 1:250. For details on specific F10SC performance and references, please contact us directly.

**Due to the large number of pathogens successfully tested, not all are included on the F10SC Veterinary Disinfectant label as approved by the APVMA. We hope to update the label to include further key disease pathogens in the near future.

F10SC Veterinary Disinfectant is available in 25L, 5L, 1L and 200ml pack sizes.
Also available in the F10 disinfection range are:
  • F10-Wipes (F10SC Disinfectant/alcohol impregnated wipes for wiping down surfaces, instruments or hands) in packs of 100.

  • NEW: F10 Aerosol Fogger is a single use canister for complete room disinfection (approx 30 cubic metres). Simply place the canister in the room and activate the fogger for quick, easy and effective disinfection. The F10 will be expelled and dissipate throughout the room within 10 minutes, efficiently disinfecting walls, surfaces, ceilings and hard to reach areas of the room. Use as part of regular or seasonal cleaning programs, or to thoroughly disinfect an entire room following a potentially infectious outbreak.
