Anti-microbial and anti-viral multi surface disinfectant
Anti-microbial and anti-viral hand rub
Manufactured in the UK
Protectus Viridis: Viridis is a water-based, organic and biodegradable product with very effective microbiocidal efficacy on a broad spectrum of Viruses, bacteria and yeasts. The major differentiation of Viridis as compared to other disinfectants is the unique RBT technology that enables the residual efficacy to be much longer lasting than traditional alcohol based disinfectants. (up to 4 hours on hands and 24 hours on hard surfaces).
Viridis has been tested against the highest EN standards in UK/EU and is registered under German BAuA for surface sanitiser. Viridis products have also been successfully tested in various childcare and dental settings on micro-organisms isolated on surfaces as well as on several antibiotic resistant bacteria isolated from Malaysian hospitals. These tests were carried out by the independent laboratory of Sunway University headed by Distinguished Prof Poh Chit Laa, who is the Head of the Centre of Virus & Vaccine Research, Sunway University. Prof Poh is a leading microbiologist / virologist in the region. She has published over 100-ISI cited papers and is on the Editorial Board of the Journal of Bioscience and Bioengineering, published by the Society of Biotechnology, Japan. She is also the leading expert in the world on Enterovirus 71.
Viridis products have the following advantages over the traditional alcohol-based disinfectants:
- • Effective microbial efficacy killing 99.999% of microbes (bacteria, viruses & fungi)
- • Longer residual efficacy protection. (Alcohol disinfectants evaporate quickly)
- • Organic, water-based, non-inflammable and biodegradable
- • Environmentally friendly
- • Does not cause skin dryness unlike alcohol-based disinfectants
- • Tested locally in Malaysia on a wide spectrum of pathogens in lab & field settings
- • In addition to the usual virus testing it is effective against HFMD (EV-A71) and DENV virus
- • Tested suitable for sensitive skin at an independent laboratory.
- • Halal Certified
Like other disinfectants Viridis has not been tested against Wuhan COVID2019, it does however have a proven track record against similar enveloped virus as well as other non-enveloped virus where it is 100% effective in killing or inhibiting; such as HFMD EV-A71 (non-enveloped) and DENV (enveloped). In a lab test conducted at Sunway University, under Prof Poh, 5% Viridis was able to inhibit EV-A71 in 5 minutes whereas it took 10% Chlorox (highly toxic) to be effective in 60 minutes. EV-A71 is typically a virus that can survive up to 7 days on surfaces and the current COViD2019 has been reported to exhibit similar survivability rate on surfaces. The Viridis formulation therefore has been proven to inhibit viruses that have the characteristic of survivability on surfaces.
The WHO has recommended traditional alcohol-based sanitizer to be used against coronavirus. However, none of the traditional disinfectants (alcohol or others) has actually been tested against the Wuhan strain (COVID2019). Viridis will definitely be more effective because of its proven longer lasting residual efficacy unlike alcohol which evaporates rapidly. Viridis has been tested to be effective to perform at V-log 4-5 (99.999%) in killing pathogens, over a 24 hour period , with 8 wear cycles, on surfaces.
