Kills Coronavirus In 1-minute

Odoo • Image and Text

Rely+On™ Virkon™ kills similar viruses and therefore can be used against SARS-CoV-2 when used in accordance with the directions for use against Hepatitis A Virus and Norovirus on hard, non-porous surfaces.

In independent tests Rely+On Virkon achieved inactivation of the coronavirus strain at a 1:100 dilution rate with a 1-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.

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™ 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 broad spectrum formulation of Rely+On™ Virkon™ is unique. No other disinfectant has the same powerful composition or extensive portfolio of performance and safety testing data. It combines application flexibility with broad spectrum efficacy, on hard surfaces, and in the face of organic challenge. These qualities make Rely+On™ Virkon™ the disinfectant of choice for use in medical facilities, pathology and biosafety containment laboratories, treatment salons and residential homes.

Rely+On™ Virkon™ has fewer handling and use constraints than many other disinfectant products and is not classified as harmful or a sensitiser in both powdered form and in-use dilutions, in accordance with EU legislation on the classification and labelling of chemical preparations.


For use in cleaning and disinfecting hard non-porous surfaces in institutional, commercial and public service facilities including hospitals and nursing homes, field medical units, medical and dental offices, clinics and other healthcare facilities, Emergency Medical Services (EMS) facilities, equipment and gear including respirators, laboratories, schools and daycare centers, food processing plants, equipment and warehouses, correctional facilities, and transportation terminals and vehicles including ships, trucks and trains.

        Easy to prepare

        • Readily soluble in warm tap water, Rely+On™ Virkon™ dissolves into a pink solution, which remains stable for up to 5 days, as a 1:100 solution. Consult your local representative for advice on stability for any alternate strength solutions.

            Key structure

            • 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.

            Hard Surface & Equipment Cleaning & Disinfection

            • The level of disease-causing organisms present after general cleaning can remain high enough to offer a serious disease challenge to patients and staff. Using a disinfectant proven to be effective against viruses, bacteria and fungi, such as Rely+On™ Virkon™, is essential.
