AHP General


Avian Influenza is an enveloped virus (easily inactivated by chemical disinfection). In the US, in accordance to the EPA based on available scientific information, a product currently registered against a strain of Influenza A virus will be effective against other influenza A virus strains on hard, non-porous surfaces. Our US AHP products have claims against several strains of Influenza A including Avian Influenza.

In Canada, AHP products have been tested against Poliovirus which allows them to make a general virucide claim in accordance to Health Canada Guidance Document, Disinfectant Drugs (Revision 2007/08/15). This means the product is expected to be effective against most enveloped and non-enveloped viruses. In addition, this product has been tested and proven effective against Influenza Virus PR8, which would be considered as surrogate for Avian Influenza.
