Surface sanitiser developed to fight COVID-19

Genesis Biosciences develops surface sanitiser product in fight against COVID-19

Genesis Biosciences has seen a huge increase in demand for its new, natural anti-microbial surface sanitiser, supplying tonnes of product across the entirety of Europe since the beginning of March.

As the world tackles the COVID-19 pandemic companies have been rapidly developing solutions, and Cardiff-based Genesis has been utilising its knowledge and experience in the research and development of microbial and antimicrobial solutions to work on their own formulation.

Genesis’ general-purpose sanitiser concentrate – part of its existing Evogen range – contains natural anti-microbial and anti-viral active ingredients that deliver high-performance sanitisation of all types of hard surfaces without the need for bleach.

The formulation includes a surfactant that provides highly effective cleaning and is proven to kill a wide spectrum of bacteria and viruses – even on food preparation areas. The sanitiser is supplied as a concentrate, packaged in 5 litre containers for public commercial use, up to intermediate bulk containers (IBCs) with a minimum of 1000 litres.

Current contracts have seen the eco-benign solution used by cleaning companies taking on large scale industrial jobs, including cleaning public-use facilities such as trains and other modes of transport, and sanitising outdoor spaces in Italy.

Dr Emma Saunders, Genesis’ General Manager, said: “The IBCs we produce are ideal for big cleaning jobs. In the wake of the current Coronavirus pandemic, when public concern about ‘germs’ and bacteria is at an all-time high, reassuring customers and the general public is crucial.

“When our anti-viral, anti-bacterial sanitiser is applied to any hard surface, it immediately eliminates bad bacteria and enveloped viruses. By ridding communal areas of viruses, we can collectively ease public concerns and begin to prepare our universally-used spaces for the end of global isolation.”

Genesis uses its expertise in fermenting bacteria strains to develop its eco-benign range of products, which includes solutions for bathroom, carpet and floor cleaning, odour control and industrial wastewater management.

The Evogen General Purpose Sanitiser concentrate, based on a natural active substance used in foods, has been proven to kill norovirus, HIV and hepatitis B among other virus’ and is currently undergoing testing to validate its effectiveness against COVID-19. The anti-bacterial formulation is manufactured in accordance with recognised international standards ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 and delivers sanitisation, cleaning and descaling in a single product.
