Rely+On™ Virkon™ Broad Spectrum Disinfectant

Rely+On™ Virkon™ broad spectrum disinfectant is ideal for the cleaning and disinfecting of hard non-porous surfaces. It is not only proven effective against common disease-causing pathogens that affect human health such as, Norovirus, Influenza virus, Salmonella enterica and Campylobacter jejuni, but also it is efficacious against prevalent hospital and food-borne pathogens such as MRSA, VRE and RSV, Hepatitis A Virus and E. coli 0157:H7.

MRSA: Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus VRE: Vancomycin-Resistant Enterococcus faecalis RSV: Respiratory Syncytial Virus


The coronavirus continues to spread. Authorities around the world are therefore tightening measures to stop the further spread of the lung disease. With no vaccine available, disinfection is of the utmost importance. The high level disinfectant Rely+On Virkon from specialty chemicals company LANXESS is effective against the corona virus. The product is used for hard surface and equipment disinfection. Anneliese Bischof, Head of the Disinfectants Business at LANXESS: “Following the outbreak of the coronavirus, we are seeing increased demand for Rely+On Virkon in China and other countries around the globe. We are therefore currently working intensively to optimally align our production and logistics capacities to deliver additional product quantity to this region as quickly as possible.”

Independent tests have proven that Rely+On Virkon inactivates a closely related surrogate of the currently spreading coronavirus strain. “From these tests it can be concluded that Rely+On Virkon is also effective against 2019-nCoV,” Bischof said.In independent tests Rely+On Virkon achieved inactivation of the coronavirus strain at a 1:100 dilution rate with a 10-minute contact time. This corresponds to test conditions required by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and proves the performance and suitability of Rely+On Virkon for practical use.

Rely+On Virkon is diluted for application and sprayed on hard surfaces and equipment. It can therefore help to reduce the risk of contamination of surfaces, door handles, tables or chairs during disinfection measures at public transport terminals, airports, hospitals, clinics, shopping malls, etc.

Rely+On™ Virkon™ oxidizes key structures and compounds, such as proteins, leading to widespread, irreversible damage and subsequent deactivation/ destruction of the microorganism. Based on this mode of action, there is no evidence to suggest that bacterial disease-causing organisms develop resistance towards Rely+On™ Virkon™ as opposed to some other disinfectant types.
