Effectiveness of Bioguard Vs. Ebola (EVD)

Bioguard's class leading hygiene, cleaning and infection control products are extensively used in healthcare environments including GP and dental surgeries, schools, nursing and care homes and emergency services. In hospital environments our products are used in mortuaries, laboratories, rehabilitation units and in critical health wards and other high risk areas.

Ebola Virus Disease (EVD)

Bioguard has been working hard with a number of key distributors including SP Services to supply a range of our products to West Africa to assist in controlling and minimising the risk from the Ebola outbreak.

Bioguard has been working hard with a number of distributors to supply a range of our products to West Africa to assist in controlling and minimising the risk from the Ebola outbreak.
As the outbreak has increased, users are looking for a range of safe and user friendly products to assist in personal protection, decontamination of high risk environments in areas at risk of Ebola. 
The Customer's Requirements
Many users are finding that standard consumer and basic professional products only offer users protection against basic bacteria’s and simple micro organisms and therefore will not be effective against viruses such as Ebola, this presents a significant infection control risk to users in high risk areas.
In addition users are also finding that many products that are effective against viruses are extremely hazardous in use, cause skin irritation or damage and degrade contact surfaces. This makes regular use of these products difficult and expensive.  
The Bioguard Solution!
Biochem the power behind Bioguard products is the unique chemical compound we’ve created for performance cleaning and disinfection.
Oviously it is not possible to test individual infection control products against Ebola due to the risks in testing, however biochem has been widely tested by leading international laboratories and is effective against high risk and difficult to kill viruses such as Hepatitis C, HIV etc….  which makes the product suitable for use in the current Ebola situation.
The efficacy and suitability of our products is also supported by the following key performance benefits;
Powerfully Effective
Independently Tested
Non hazardous and food safe
Skin and surface friendly
Will not damage or degrade contact surfaces
Ideal for high risk environments
Easy on the environment
Economic in use

While it is difficult to conduct testing against Ebola in controlled conditions, Bioguard is virucidal and extremely effective against some difficult to kill viruses. While Ebola can be deadly if contracted, as a virus it fairly easy to inactivate before it is contracted.

Bioguard can have a residual efficacy of up to 7 days if applied to a surface that remains relatively clean, however if high levels of soiling happen on that contact surface you will need to re-apply the product as efficacy will disappear. Outside of laboratory conditions it is virtually impossible to maintain an unsoiled environment for a prolonged period and as such we recommend that you use regular surface treatments of Bioguard for maximum effectiveness against virus like organisms such as Ebola. Steve Bray, SP's Managing Director says "Any company claiming very high residual efficacy eg 10-14 days is we believe making an unrealistic statement and can't be based on a 'real world' situation such as those being experienced by the healthcare professionals and volunteers working in the Ebola clinics and hospitals in West Africa."
