Directions For Use

BioSentry® 904 Disinfectant is a complete, chemically balanced disinfectant that provides clear use solutions even in cold water. Kills a broad range of gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria, fungi and viruses associated with the avian hatching industry, poultry, swine and livestock (including equine) premises, laboratory animal facilities and kennels. (See antimicrobial efficacy chart on the container label.)

DIRECTIONS FOR USE IN AVIAN HATCHERIES: For disinfecting precleaned surfaces: Use BioSentry® 904 Disinfectant to disinfect precleaned non-porous surfaces including hatchers, setters, trays, racks, egg flats, walls, floors, ceilings and other surfaces in the hatchery environment. It is also excellent for chick boxes, egg cases, vans and trash containers.

Preclean the surface to be disinfected with a BioSentry® hatchery cleaner. Rinse and if possible let surfaces dry. Then, apply BioSentry® 904 Disinfectant at four (4) mL per litre of water (0.40%) by immersion, by flowing solution over treated surfaces, by use of a soft coarse spray, with a clean mop or cloth, or through a foaming apparatus. Thoroughly wet surfaces. Surfaces should remain moist for 10 minutes for complete disinfection.

NOTE: Do not spray BioSentry® 904 Disinfectant solutions unless workers are protected from breathing the spray mist.

SANITIZING HATCHERY ROOMS BY FOG APPLICATION: Close room off so fog is confined to the room to be treated. Mix one (1) part BioSentry® 904 Disinfectant to five (5) parts water. Insert the nozzle of the fogger through a suitable opening into the room. With the setting on maximum output, fog for one (1) to three (3) minutes for each 113 cubic meters of space in the room (4000 ft3). Duration of fogging time is dependent on type of fogging equipment used. Refer to fogger instructions. Under no circumstances should a room or building be entered by anyone within 4 hours or until fog has completely settled.

NOTE: The fog generated is very irritating to eyes, skin and mucous membranes. Under no circumstances should a room or building be entered by anyone until the fog has completely settled, normally 1 - 4 hours after the actual fogging. If feeders and waterers were not removed from the premises during treatment, or were not adequately covered to prevent contact with treatment, they should be washed with detergent and water before use for poultry or livestock.

SANITIZING INCUBATORS AND HATCHERS BY FOGGING: Prepare a stock solution of 45 mL BioSentry® 904 Disinfectant to 1 litre of water. Fog 90 - 240 mL of this into setters and hatchers immediately after transfer. Repeat daily in setters and every 12 hours in hatchers. Discontinue hatcher treatments approximately 24 hours prior to pulling the hatch. Do not allow people to contact or breathe this fog and do not enter machines until the fog has settled (30 - 60 minutes after fogging is completed). To do this, install permanent fogging nozzles in setters and hatchers and use an air compressor to disperse the sanitizing solution as a fog. Contact your BioSentry® Technical Representative if you need assistance.

It is also satisfactory to fog setters and hatchers with 4 mL of BioSentry® 904 Disinfectant per litre of water. If this is done, fog for 30 - 90 seconds once per hour or once every two hours. Contact your BioSentry® Technical Representative for assistance.

DISINFECTING CHICK VANS, EGG TRUCKS, HATCHERY AND FARM VEHICLES: Clean and rinse vehicles and disinfect with 4 mL per litre of BioSentry® 904 Disinfectant. Rinse after 10 minutes contact. BioSentry® 904 Disinfectant should not be mixed with other cleaning or disinfecting compounds or products.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE ON POULTRY, SWINE AND LIVESTOCK (INCLUDING EQUINE) FARMS

GENERAL FARM DISINFECTANT USES: (4 mL per litre, 1:250)

(a) Remove all livestock and feeds from premises, trucks, coops or crates to be treated.

(b) Remove all litter, bedding and manure from floors, walls and surfaces of facilities traversed or occupied by animals.

(c) Empty all feeding devices and watering appliances.

(d) Clean all surfaces with water or water and a compatible detergent.

(e) Saturate all surfaces with BioSentry® 904 Disinfectant diluted at 4 mL per litre of water using a brush, cloth, mop or mechanical spraying device. Small items (forks, shovels, scrapers) may be immersed. Treated surfaces must remain moist for at least 10 minutes for proper germicidal action.

(f) Ventilate buildings, trucks, coops and other closed spaces. Do not house livestock or use equipment until treatment has thoroughly dried.

(g) Thoroughly scrub treated feeding and watering equipment with detergent and rinse with potable water before reuse.

VEAL, CALVING, HOG, CATTLE AND HORSE OPERATIONS: Between depopulations of facilities, cleaning and disinfection of pens, hutches, aisles, ventilation equipment, utensils and other environmental surfaces may be required. Flush soils from these areas and clean and disinfect with 4 mL of BioSentry® 904 Disinfectant per litre of water. Take care to avoid disinfectant use solution contact with animals, feed, feed equipment, water or watering devices as indicated above. If spray contacts feeders or waterers, scrub them and rinse well with potable water before they are reused.

BOOT BATH: Use 8 mL of BioSentry® 904 Disinfectant per litre of water (1:125) in boot baths. Change solution daily and anytime it becomes visibly soiled. Use a nylon bristled brush to clean soils from boots.

SANITIZING POULTRY HOUSES AND LIVESTOCK BUILDINGS USING BIOSENTRY® 904 DISINFECTANT VIA THERMAL FOGGING: After the building has been depopulated and cleaned as in (a) (b) (c) and (d) under «General Farm Disinfectant Uses», double check to be sure all people, poultry, livestock and pets have vacated the building. Close all windows, doors, louvers, curtains, etc., making the building as closed and tight as possible. Mix one (1) part BioSentry® 904 Disinfectant with two (2) parts water in the reservoir of the fogger. With the setting on maximum output, fog the treatment into the room or building to be sanitized. Use a total of one litre of BioSentry® 904 Disinfectant for each 186 square meters of floor space. If the area is more than 8 meters high, use two (2) litres per 186 square meters of floor space. In multi-story buildings, the application must be repeated for each floor that is to be sanitized. The fogger itself may be placed just inside the door of the building to be treated, or the nozzle of the fogger may be inserted through a suitable opening in the door or building. The opening should be just large enough to accommodate the nozzle. After fogging, the building should be kept closed for twenty-four hours. After twenty-four hours the fog should have settled and the building can then be opened and aired. The building should be opened for a minimum of twenty-four hours before it is repopulated with poultry or livestock.

NOTE: The fog generated is very irritating to the eyes, skin and mucous membranes. Under no circumstances should a room or building be entered by anyone within 4 hours or until the fog has completely settled. If the building or room must be entered before the fog completely settles, then individuals entering the building or room must wear a self-contained respirator approved be NIOSH/MSHA, goggles, long shirt sleeves and pants. If feeders and waterers were not removed from the premises during treatment, or were not adequately covered to prevent contact with treatment, they should be washed with detergent and water before use for poultry and livestock.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE IN ANIMAL CARE FACILITIES, ANIMAL RESEARCH CENTERS, ANIMAL BREEDING FACILITIES, KENNELS AND ANIMAL QUARANTINE AREAS: BioSentry® 904 Disinfectant is a one-step germicide, fungicide, soapless cleaner and deodorant effective in the presence of organic soil (5% serum). It is non-selective and, when used as directed, will not harm tile, terrazzo, resilient flooring, concrete, painted surfaces, varnished wood, glass or metals.

- To clean and disinfect hard surfaces, use 4 mL of BioSentry® 904 Disinfectant per litre of water (1:250). Apply by immersion, flushing solution over treated surfaces or with a mop, sponge, cloth or bowl mop to thoroughly wet surfaces. Prepare fresh solutions daily or when solution becomes visibly dirty.

- To clean badly soiled areas, use up to 12 mL per litre of water (1:83).
