Pharmacidal Spray for Disinfecting Laboratory Incubators, Tissue Culture Hoods and all Surfaces.


Pharmacidal is a ready-for-use disinfectant spray suitable for use in all areas of the laboratory. It is effective against the whole spectrum of bacteria, mycoplasma, yeast, fungi and viruses. It contains no aldehydes, phenolic derivatives, chlorine or peroxides but is based on an inventive combination of three benzyl ammonium chlorides in a specific ratio.

Based on the manufacturers experience, Pharmacidal can be used in loaded incubators without problems since the active substance is not volatile. Pharmacidal is bio-degradable and causes no damage to incubators, hoods or workers.

Tables and hoods that are used by more than 1 person should be sprayed before each person starts working instead of the common practice of illuminating UV lamps for 20 mins prior to working.
