Winning the Battle Against Avian Flu with Selective Micro's Chlorine Dioxide Solutions

Chlorine dioxide is recognized as a powerful, broad-spectrum disinfectant known for its strong oxidizing properties. As a biocide, it is effective in disrupting bacterial cell walls, damaging viral capsid proteins, and degrading viral RNA. This makes chlorine dioxide a formidable opponent against a wide array of pathogens, including feline calicivirus, hepatitis A virus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Salmonella enterica, Staphylococcus aureus, among many others. Notably, its efficacy extends to combatting avian influenza, a virus that poses significant risks to poultry farming and, by extension, food safety.

Recent studies, including one published in the Biosafety and Health publication (Volume 4, Issue 1, February 2022), have documented chlorine dioxide's effectiveness against specific strains of avian influenza, such as the H7N9 virus. The research demonstrated that chlorine dioxide, both in aqueous solution and gas forms, can effectively inactivate the H7N9 influenza virus, offering a promising solution for decontamination and disinfection of environments potentially affected by the virus.
