Who is Using Virkon® Aquatic to reduce the spread of disease?

How long does Virkon® Aquatic solution remain active?  – Virkon® Aquatic solutions are colorless, odorless, and will gradually loose activity over time.  The Virkon® Aquatic label states that solutions are stable for at least 7 days.  The actual solution life can vary and will be reduced by exposure to organics and UV light.

What is the difference between Virkon® Aquatic and Virkon-S?  Virkon® Aquatic was first made available in the USA in May of 2007 and it is specifically designed for use in fish culture while Virkon-S is designed for use in the production of poultry, swine, and other types of agriculture.  Virkon® Aquatic does not contain an indicator dye or perfume as found in Virkon-S.  The dye and perfume have been removed to make the product more suitable for use around fish and other aquatic life.  Virkon® Aquatic has a formulation based on the same active ingredients as Virkon-S but with inert ingredients that are designed for use in aquatic applications.  There are also important EPA labeling differences between Virkon®Aquatic and Virkon-S.  The EPA approved label for Virkon® Aquatic contains expanded aquaculture claims and applications and is approved for use in aquaculture.  Virkon-S is no longer recommended for use in aquaculture and its label will no longer carry EPA approval for aquaculture claims.
