Zoono Group’s (ZNO) Z-71 Microbe Shield surface sanitiser has been successfully tested against the recent coronavirus (COVIOD-19).

Laboratory tests show the product is more than 99.99 per cent effective against the virus.

COVID-19 has become a global concern and has been shown to survive on surfaces for up to nine days. Zoono products have been successfully tested against a variety of pathogens for up to 30 days on surfaces and 24 hours on hands.

Z-71 was previously tested against bovine coronavirus, however, this latest strain required new testing.

The company conducted two separate tests to EN Standard 14476:2013+A2:2019 for chemical disinfectants and antiseptics.

EN14476 is the European Standard that applies to products within the medical area, this includes hygienic hand rubs, hygienic hand wash, instrument disinfection by immersion, surface disinfection by wiping, spraying, flooding and others.

Z-71 Microbe Shield is the same technology used in the company’s hand sanitisers.

“Zoono is very pleased with the results which further demonstrates the ability of the Zoono technology to be part of the solution to prevent and protect against the spread of the COVID19 Virus,” the company told the market.

Zoono is up 9.26 per cent on the market this morning, trading at $1.77 per share at 11:31 am AEDT.
