September 18, 2014 - A recent controlled study performed by a research team at Iowa State University demonstrated that under simulated field conditions (those normally seen in swine trailers) an Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide® (AHP®) disinfectant was able to kill 100 per cent of the Porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDv)in the presence of both light and high (up to 25 per cent) amounts of fecal matter. 

In addition, the study showed the potential of decreasing the number of steps needed to properly decontaminate a trailer, thus making the whole process more efficient and cost effective.


The results of the study will soon be submitted for peer review publication. 

 Health Canada has approved the disinfectant, known as Accel®, for killing the most difficult non-enveloped and enveloped viruses and mycobacterium. Accel also acts as a cleaner and does not normally require a pre-cleaning step. 

Other benefits include the fact that Accel is a more user friendly disinfectant to use, does not require the use of PPE when being applied, and is also environmentally friendly. 

Accel is distributed by Ogena Solutions LLC and patented and manufactured by Virox Technologies Inc. Farm Guard Products has partnered with Ogena Solutions LLC in distributing Accel to the Canadian farmed animal industry.
