This state of the art, non-alkaline, phenolic germicidal detergent is a multi-purpose product specifically developed to be both hard water and serum effective in a concentrated system for use on hard, non-porous critical environment surfaces found in aseptic rooms and hoods; air locks; gowning; barrier isolation; process equipment and piping systems. The use-solution is designed to clean, disinfect and deodorize in a simple one step process. In addition the non-alkaline formula removes soap scum and hard water scale which can harbor bacteria. Use this product on washable hard non-porous environmental surfaces such as floors, walls, counters, tools, carts, and other equipment in food processing preparation and service facilities, in animal and avian husbandry, poultry and feed processing facilities, veterinary clinics, animal research facilities, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, medical device and FDA regulated facilities.

Although efficacy at 1 minute contact time has been shown to be adequate against HIV-1, this time would not be sufficient for other organisms. Use a 10-minute contact time for disinfection against all of the organisms claimed.

Kills Pandemic 2009 H1N1 Influenza A virus formerly called swine flu.

ODOR CONTROL: It eliminates many odors by killing odor-causing bacteria while simultaneously chemically neutralizing their odors.

Allow treated surfaces to soak for 10 minutes. Then remove excess solution with a wrung-out applicator. As solution becomes dirty, discard and replace with a fresh one. Before cleaning begins, always sweep or dust mop area to be cleaned thoroughly, removing any gross filth. A properly prepared solution of LpH ag intended for use as a hard surface disinfectant has a shelf life of 14 days (use life) when stored in a closed container such as a spray bottle. This is a complete product. Do not add other chemicals. If frozen, thaw and re-mix before use. Use only as directed.

ANIMAL HUSBANDRY, ANIMAL RESEARCH, POULTRY HOUSE FACILITY CLEANING AND DISINFECTION: Do not use in milking stalls, milking parlors or milk houses. Remove or cover all food, feedstuffs, packaging materials and livestock. Remove all litter, manure and other debris from floors and walls; scrape if necessary. Empty all troughs, racks, feed and water appliances. Saturate all surfaces with a 1:256 solution (one-half ounce per gallon prepared as directed above). Scrub to loosen adhering soils. Allow to soak for 10 minutes, then pick up excess with a wrung-out applicator. Flush feeders and waterers with potable water after disinfecting. Drain all surfaces, ventilate buildings and allow to air dry before use or rehousing animals.

FOGGING AS AN ADJUNCT TO REGULAR CLEANING AND DISINFECTING: This product may be used in fogging (wet misting) as an adjunct either preceding or following regular cleaning and disinfecting procedures in research and manufacturing facilities, in poultry operations, hatcheries, swine operations, animal care facilities, animal research facilities, livestock operations, veterinary facilities, zoos and kennels. Use a 1:256 dilution (one-half ounce per gallon of water). Remove all animals and feed from areas to be fogged. Remove all litter and manure from surfaces or areas traversed by animals. Empty all troughs, racks and other feeding and watering appliances. Thoroughly clean all surfaces. Fog the desired area at 32 to 64 ounces of use-dilution per 1000 cubic feet using equipment with an automatic timer. Do not remain in treated areas; allow at least two hours after fogging is complete before reentering fogged area. Before fogging remove or cover any food or packaging material with waterproof coverings. Treated surfaces must be thoroughly scrubbed with LpH ag at a 1:256 dilution and rinsed with potable water before reuse. Do not rehouse livestock or employ equipment until treatment has dried.

CLEANING AND DISINFECTING FOOD PREPARATION, PROCESSING FACILITIES AND EQUIPMENT: Cover or remove all food and packaging materials. Remove all gross soils. Saturate all surfaces with the use-solution (one-half ounce per gallon prepared as directed above). Scrub to loosen all soils. Allow to soak for 10 minutes, then pick up excess solution with a wrung-out applicator. Thoroughly rinse all wetted and cleaned food contact surfaces with potable water.

SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR CLEANING AND DECONTAMINATION AGAINST HIV-1 (HUMAN IMMUNODEFICIENCY VIRUS OR AIDS VIRUS) OF SURFACES / OBJECTS SOILED WITH BLOOD/BODY FLUIDS: Personal Protection: Wear appropriate barrier protection such as latex gloves, gowns, masks or eye coverings. Cleaning Procedure: Blood and other body fluids must be thoroughly cleaned from surfaces and objects before application of a 1:256 use-solution (one-half ounce per 1 gallon). Prepare and apply solution as directed in paragraph above. Contact Time: While the HIV-1 virus is inactivated in 1 minute, use a 10-minute contact time for disinfection of all organisms on the label. Infectious Materials Disposal: Blood and other body fluids should be autoclaved and disposed of according to local regulations for infectious disposal.
