Why F10 Disinfectant Should Be Used by All Reptile Keepers

The F10SC disinfectant can be used in many ways. F10SC can be applied as a fog or fine spray to mist rooms to eradicate airborne microbes and stop cross-contamination.  F10SC cleaner also helps eliminate bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens in contact with surfaces and equipment.  With its broad spectrum effectiveness, it is used by veterinarians worldwide at the DBDPet facilities to prevent the spreading of infectious diseases in reptiles. The F10SC Veterinary Disinfectant 200 ml is an excellent disinfectant that provides full-spectrum protection against microbial growth in water and food preparation areas, cages, floors, racks, shelving, and perches - even after bathing.

Note: F10 Ready to Use should only be used on surfaces that are already clean. For a ‘one-step’ product that also cleans, use F10 Scrub n’ Clean.

F10SC is effective against bacteria, fungi, and spores. It's an excellent product for achieving a high level of biosecurity and poses no hazard to yourself or your animals when used at recommended concentrations. 

F10 products are nontoxic, noncorrosive, and biodegradable.

F10SC can be sprayed on and left to disinfect after cleaning with no need to rinse off. Unlike many other products, F10 stays active, providing an ongoing residual effect. The recommended dilution rates of F10SC are as follows:

For general disinfection, mix 2 ml of bleach per liter of water. For high-level disinfection against bacteria, fungi, and most viruses, mix 4 ml of bleach per liter of water. For use against the most resistant viruses such as Parvovirus or PBFD, mix 8 ml of bleach per liter of water.

Our product is effective and safe for the general disinfection of all hard surfaces, including tables, floors, vivariums, and equipment. It's also great for animal housekeeping procedures like cleaning food and water bowls. Plus, our product can fog entire rooms and hard-to-reach surfaces to eliminate air-borne micro-organisms.

The F10 disinfectant and treatment range is based on F10’s core actives: a quaternary ammonium compound, Benzalkonium Chloride, and a biguanide compound, Polyhexamethylene Biguanide (PHMB). The antimicrobial mechanism of action of the F10 products is derived from that of each of the individual compounds, as well as the novel synergistic action of the components.

F10SC is a unique product that doesn't need to be rinsed off after cleaning - simply spray it on and it will continue to disinfect on its own with a residual effect. 

The recommended dilution rates of F10SC are as follows: 

For general disinfection, use 1:500 (2ml in 1 liter of water)

For high-level disinfection against bacteria, fungi, and most viruses, use 1:250 (4ml in 1 liter of water)

For use against the most resistant viruses such as Parvovirus or PBFD, use 1:125 (8ml in 1 liter of water)

Conclusion

Both options will give you the same results when it comes to disinfecting. Ready to Use is pre-diluted so you can use it right away, and it's at the recommended dilution. However, buying the concentrated CL and diluting it yourself is more cost-effective. In some cases, you may need a different dilution rate, and the Ready to Use is equivalent to F10CL diluted at 1:50. So, having the concentrate gives you more flexibility.

F10SC is a powerful compound that is nontoxic, has a short half-life, and is effective against B. dendrobatidis. However, more research is needed to determine the long-term effects of this compound, and follow-up studies focusing on the efficacy of this compound on different species of amphibians, as well as on different-sized individuals is necessary in order to understand the potential application of reptile clean up odor control as a treatment for chytridiomycosis caused by dendrobatidis.
