THYMOX® AG kills HIV-1 (AIDS VIRUS) on pre-cleaned, environmental surfaces/objects previously soiled with blood/body fluids in health care settings or other settings in which there is an expected likelihood of transmission of this virus.
Special instructions for cleaning and decontamination against HIV-1:
Disposable protective gloves, gown, face mask, and eye coverings must be worn, as appropriate, during all cleaning of blood/body fluids and during decontamination procedures.
Blood/body fluids must be thoroughly cleaned from surfaces/objects before application of disinfectant.
Apply THYMOX AG diluted at 1/100 (v/v) on surfaces or equipment to be disinfected until completely saturated and let stand for 1 minute. Wipe using a clean cloth. Surfaces coming into contact with food must be rinsed after disinfecting.
Disposal of Infectious Materials: Blood/body fluids should be autoclaved and disposed of according to federal, state and local regulations for infectious waste disposal.
SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR DISINFECTING AND SANITIZING ANIMAL HUSBANDRY FARMS:
In order to obtain optimal results:
1) Remove animals and their feed from the area to be disinfected;
2) Prior to disinfecting with Thymox AG, thoroughly clean surfaces with a high performance detergent, use mechanical/manual brushing if necessary;
3) To better apply THYMOX AG, use a “foamer” or spray gun. Make sure to use an applicator that is well calibrated in order to obtain the right Thymox AG dilution (1%);
4) After applying THYMOX AG, vent and let dry completely and rapidly (in under 24 hours) before reintroducing animals. Beware of accidental recontamination of disinfected areas.
5) Occasionally, perform microbiological quality control in order to verify the efficacy of the washing and disinfecting method.
FOGGING AND MISTING:
Apply 2 mL of Thymox AG per cubic meter (35 cubic feet) of the room being disinfected.
It is recommended to perform a trial before using any new fogging or misting machinery. Consult www.thymox.com for more information.
Use 10 mL of THYMOX AG per liter of water when using it in footbaths. Change the solution daily and as soon it is visibly soiled. If necessary, remove excess dirt prior to disinfection.
