Ark-Klens and ornamental birds

Recommended against E.coli, Salmonella, psittacosis and flu viruses.

This is a blend of benzalkonium chloride (quaternary ammonium compounds or QAC´s) specially selected for safety of use. This family of chemicals are powerful disinfectants with an additional detergent and deodorising action.

At the recommended concentrations ARK-KLENS is non-corrosive, it is bactericidal against a wide range of gram negative and gram positive bacteria, some viruses and some fungi are also susceptible. This makes ARK-KLENS suitable for disinfection of the birds or animals "environment" such as cages, kennels, and food and water bowls etc. It can also be used safely as a disinfectant for birds eggs and incubators.

As a disinfectant it has broad antibacterial activity and is virucidal against lipophilic viruses. It is of particular use in exotic bird quarantine situations due to its efficacy against Chlamydia (ref. Helga Gerlach in Ritchie, Harrison & Harrison 1994, Avian Medicine.Principles and Application, "Infectivity has been shown to be destroyed within minutes by benzalkonium chloride"). These authors also suggest its use for daily cage cleansing and as a table top disinfectant.

General disinfection is carried out using 10ml/5 litres ie a final concentration of 0.025%.

250ml makes 25 gallons (100 litres) of disinfectant.

This concentration is suitable for egg washing although up to (1 in 1000) is used safely on poultry eggs.

Many, many thanks -

 I am not sure of which staff member dealt with my order for chloramine T, but I would just like to say a massive thank-you for getting the item in the post as quickly as she did. To my mind her actions were above and beyond the normal call of duty and I really appreciate it.
