LEXINGTON, Ky., — Neogen Corporation announced today that Health Canada has granted temporary approval for Neogen to supply Neogen® Viroxide Super disinfectant to aid in the country’s fight against COVID-19.

Neogen Viroxide Superis a disinfectant that inactivates coronaviruses through oxidization chemistry. The non-resistant, oxidative chemistry causes extensive damage to the protective mechanisms of microbial cells, killing bacteria, viruses, fungi and spores.

“The cleaning and disinfection of homes and places of business is essential in helping to stop the spread of COVID-19,” said Neogen’s Katlyn Connelly.
