Actril™ and Minncare™ Cold Sterilant Demonstrate Complete Inactivation of 229E Human Coronavirus Strain in 5 Minutes!

Submitted on Mon, 04/06/2020
Cantel has taken steps to understand SARS-CoV-2 and the efficacy of their high-level disinfectants and sterilants against it. Confirmatory testing performed by a third-party laboratory has verified the efficacy of Cantel’s Cold Sterilants (Minncare™ and Renalin™ 100) on hard, non-porous surfaces by demonstrating a complete inactivation of the 229E human coronavirus strain in 5 minutes at room temperature when diluted for use according to label instructions. For more convenient applications, Actril™ Cold Sterilant delivers the same, reliable active ingredient in a ready-to-use (no dilution needed) version of the same formulation. Additionally, these high-level disinfectants and sterilant products carry surface disinfection claims against enveloped viruses similar to coronavirus and have shown efficacy on more challenging, non-enveloped viruses and many other more ’robust’ pathogens.

Actril™ Cold Sterilant is a powerful, ready-to-use disinfectant for use in small businesses, classrooms, airplanes, pharmaceutical cleanrooms and other critical infection prevention areas. Surfaces made from non-porous materials such as plastics, stainless steel or glass can be disinfected using this solution.
