PathoCide® has been proven by an independent GLP laboratory to kill 99.999% of bacteria in seconds. This includes the ability to inactivate SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19) in 60 seconds on a pre-cleaned surface and in 10 minutes in a one-step process when produced by on-site generator and used as directed. It is also effective against a wide range of bacteria and viruses, including Norovirus, which is generally recognized as one of the most difficult to kill.
