Summary of antimicrobial activity of Hydrocyn® aqua.
* 2 minutes exposure time
Hydrocyn® aqua has been tested on SARS-CoV-2 in collaboration with the National Veterinary Institute (SVA) in Uppsala.
The virus culture with SARS-CoV-2 was exposed to Hydrocyn® aqua directly from the bottle. The effect against the virus was tested after 30 seconds, 1 minute and 2 minutes.
After already 30 seconds, the level of alive and active virus had been reduced by 99.9%. Thus, most of the virus had been killed (deactivated) and was no longer contagious.
Hydrocyn® aqua has also shown a significant effect on inactivation of previous strains of coronavirus eg. HCoV-229E.
