As a research-driven company, our Deliberately Different® approach lives at the core of our innovation. We find novel solutions that redefine disinfection through highly technical products that address the ever-changing landscape of infection prevention and biosecurity. Our multi-patented formulas are state-of-the-art technology platforms with demonstrable superiority and adaptability.
Choosing the right disinfectant requires more than just identifying what it kills. The ideal disinfectant should be the perfect balance of cleaning efficiency, germicidal activity, occupational safety, environmental impact, and material compatibility.
Virox’s patented technologies achieve the perfect balance of unmatched efficacy, environmental integrity and application safety.
Delivering superior kill performance with shorter contact times.
Cleans while it disinfects and disinfects while it cleans in one act.
Non-irritating, odor-free, and emits no VOC’s.
Biodegradable, easy to dispose of with minimal to nil environmental impact.
Protecting assets by reducing corrosion and wear.
Virox engineered Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide® as a game-changing disinfectant technology that has been relied on for more than two decades. Using low levels of hydrogen peroxide, together with a synergistic blend of commonly used, safe ingredients, AHP® has exceptional potency as a germicide and performance as a cleaner without sacrificing safety or sustainability.
Citr-IQ™ is our new patented disinfectant technology that harnesses the natural antimicrobial power of citric acid and represents the next chapter in Virox innovation. Citr-IQ maintains the balance of efficacy and safety that Virox antimicrobial technologies are known for but does so while advancing performance in sustainability and material compatibility.
For hundreds of years, we sought ways to prevent the spread of infectious diseases. Since the turn of the 20th Century, more complex disinfectant technologies have been engineered, many of which are still used today. Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide® (AHP®) made history by becoming the next-generation disinfectant technology—achieving the perfect balance between efficacy and safety.
Phenols were introduced as the first surface disinfectant but continue to be harsh on skin and eyes.
Bleach is made commercially available to kill pathogens but is still rendered ineffective by organic soil.
Alcohols (Isopropyl and Ethanol) used for surface disinfection evaporate rapidly and are rendered ineffective against targeted pathogens.
Glutaraldehyde for medical device disinfection is introduced but soon reveals occupational health risks.
Quaternary Ammonia compounds accumulate in the environment and have broad-spectrum disinfection challenges.
Antibiotic-resistant Staphylococcus aureus appears, exposing the health risks of working with phenols.
New strains of antibiotic-resistant pathogens appear. Special handling requirements for Glutaraldehyde implemented.
Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide® (AHP®) is launched, representing the most significant disinfectant advance in over a century: powerful on pathogens but safer for users.
AHP® formulated disinfectants appear in over 200 human and animal health products across 60+ countries, and in 2017, AHP® was approved for use on the International Space Station.
Virox Technologies continues developing innovative disinfecting formulations to combat germs and the spread of infection. In 2021, the innovators of AHP® patented a new, more efficient, and safer disinfectant technology that utilizes the natural antimicrobial properties of citric acid. Welcome Citr-iQ™.
Virox creates branded and private label products, and partners with market leaders in an array of industries, pioneering the broader acceptance of next-generation disinfectants in human and animal health settings.
