Efficacy of Pathosans Products

PathoNex is on EPA List N.  It has demonstrated effectiveness against viruses similar to SARS-CoV-2 on hard, non-porous surfaces. Therefore, Pathonex can be used against SARS-CoV-2 when used in accordance with the directions for use against Feline Calicivirus as a surrogate for Norovirus on precleaned, hard, non-porous surfaces. Refer to the CDC website at https://www.cdc.gov/ for additional information.

PathoPure is a multi-purpose cleaner/degreaser that removes surface dirt and difficult stains and even long-term residue build-up. Unlike other cleaning chemicals, PathoPure is non-toxic. It can be safely used without gloves or other PPE. It’s non-irritating to eyes and skin and contains no added fragrances. PathoPure leaves behind no chemical residue and greatly reduces the risk of skin sensitivities or allergic reactions.
