Test results

Extensive testing shows that Hydrocyn effectively eliminates bacteria, virus and fungi. Below is a summary of test results regarding antimicrobial activity – after exposure to Hydrocyn – for different microbes.

Bacteria

Bacteria

Hydrocyn has been tested on several microorganisms following the ASTM E2315 standard test. The reduction shown in the table is after 1 minute exposure time (unless otherwise indicated). Hydrocyn has also been shown to reduce biofilm.

Virus

Virus

Hydrocyn has been tested on SARS-CoV-2 in collaboration with the National Veterinary Institute (SVA) in Uppsala.

The virus culture with SARS-CoV-2 was exposed to Hydrocyn® aqua directly from the bottle. The effect against the virus was tested after 30 seconds, 1 minute and 2 minutes. After already 30 seconds, the level of alive and active virus had been reduced by 99.9%. Thus, most of the virus had been killed (deactivated) and was no longer contagious.

Hydrocyn has also shown a significant effect on inactivation of previous strains of coronavirus e.g., HCoV-229E.
