Your Answer To Lower Production Costs
Is your farm making money?
Biosecurity in farms is the first line indicator of money-making success in any farm. It is a Do-or-Die matter! Farmers learn this the painful way when hygiene measures are not implemented one hundred percent to prevent disease spread.
GlutaQ Takes Care Of Your Farm Biosecurity
Kills 99.9% of Bacteria, Viruses, Fungi & Spores
Long-acting with a broad spectrum, GlutaQ is a Glutaraldehyde and Quats combination that kills deadly pathogens quickly. This researched combination increases the penetration of the sanitizer into cell surfaces, making GlutaQ the ideal disinfectant in animal facilities.

Why is GlutaQ Our Recommended Choice For Environmental Sanitation
Answer the questions below to find out!
1. Are You Using On The Skin?
Personal decontamination is a must before entering and leaving specific areas. A skin-safe solution must be used and an efficacy profile determined that the disinfectant solution used is effective against all types of viruses. Products containing only quarternary ammonium compounds or phenolics are inactive against category B viruses. (FAO manual).
2. What Materials Are You Sanitizing?
Steel materials in the form of cages and equipment can be corroded by chemicals. Plastics maybe degraded over time by high heat and need cold sterilant for the process. It is important to check for each product’s profile and corrosion safety test results. Different types of steel have different resistances to corrosion as well. For example, 304 stainless steel does not have molybdenum which 316 steel incorporates for increased resistance to chlorides.
3. Are There Loads Of Organic Matter?
In a farm environment where organic matter load is high, it is crucial to use a chemical that is proven to kill microorganisms in the presence of organic matter. Alcohols and common chlorine-based solutions require a good rinsing process before application as they are inactivated by organic matter. Formulas of Glutaraldehyde and Quarternary compounds combined have helped to increase disinfectant penetration in the presence of organic matter.
4. Are Your Rooms Well Ventilated?
Most chemicals have a flammable risk or release toxic gases harmful to the lungs in higher concentrations. It is important to ensure the storage conditions of these chemicals are well ventilated and to choose lower risk formulations with good activity against specific microorganisms that you are looking to control. Ventilation setup in all areas of disinfection must be planned carefully.
5. What Diseases Do You Want To Prevent?
Knowing what your animals are most vulnerable against is most important to choose the disinfectant that will work best for your farm. Every breeder of different animal types or products will face different needs in terms of microbial defense. UNFAO recommends a broad-acting antimicrobial agent for food chain sustainability.
6. How Easy Is It To Use?
Biosecurity only works as far as it is used. As mentioned by Prof Pariwat Poolperm in Vietstock Expo & Forum, biosecurity is a do-or-die habit and must be one hundred percent implemented 24/7. Disinfectants and their tools must be firstly easy to use, and be in use by all workers and visitors on the farm to effective. CleanLAB Compact Inline disinfecting systems with patented slow-release dosing tablets have reduced farmworker operational headaches.
