EAST HARTFORD, CT – BioSafe Systems is pleased to announce preliminary results from a GLP efficacy study demonstrated that SaniDate All Purpose Disinfectant is an effective virucide against Human Coronavirus on hard, non-porous surfaces. SaniDate All Purpose Disinfectant met the performance requirements under the test conditions for virucidal efficacy as set by EPA. The efficacy study was conducted using the product at a rate of 3.0 fl. oz. per gallon with a 10-minute contact time. SaniDate All Purpose Disinfectant demonstrated total inactivation of the virus, a =4.00 log10 reduction in titer of Human Coronavirus. US EPA requires a minimum =3.00 log10 reduction in titer for approval.
With these positive results, the virucidal study will be submitted to United States EPA for evaluation and approval with a label amendment to add virucidal Human Coronavirus claims through an expedited process. Once approved, this virus will be added to the product label in the United States* allowing the product to be included in the EPA List N-Disinfectants for Use Against SARS-CoV-2.

The US EPA has approved a newly expanded label for BioSafe Systems’ AzaGuard Botanical Insecticide/Nematicide, including expanded use rates, new pests, and two new use sites.
AzaGuard’s use rates have been expanded to allow for a greater treatment range and better efficacy against strong infestations. In some cases, these expanded rates represent a doubling of the amount of AzaGuard used per acre of treated crops.
In addition to these expanded rates, several new use sites and pests have been added to the label. AzaGuard can now be applied to mushrooms and manure piles to treat for Mushroom flies, Nematodes, and Phorid flies. New pests for other food crops include grasshoppers and locusts, mites, and chafers. Other pest groups, including flies, moths, and grubs, have been expanded to include more sub-species.
