Chlorine Dioxide Biocidal Spectrum

Chlorine Dioxide Biocidal Spectrum

As mentioned above, Chlorine Dioxide in different products has been registered since 1988 as a sterlizer .

 The  EPA definifition of a sterlizer is the ability "to destroy or eliminate all forms of microbial life including fungi, viruses, and  all forms of bacteria and their spores," 

More specific tests have been done that prove Chlorine Dioxide's ability to destroy the following:

Keep  in mind this is not the full spectrum, but specific tests done against  many of the most common pathogens. Included in this list are MRSA,  HIV,  E.Coli, Staph, Anthrax, Salmonella, Parvo, Aspergillus, Candida, and  many other pathogens that most people will have contact with through  thier lives. Chlorine Dioxide when used as a water and surface  treatment, vegetable rinse, and environmental cleaner, can help keep  your home a cleaner, safer place than using chlorine based products.
