Vantocil, an antimicrobial product long used as a hospital disinfectant, is also highly effective in controlling the H1N1 virus that causes swine flu, according to research conducted in the US.

Research done by ATS Labs, Eagan, Minnesota, showed Vantocil FHC was effective within 10 minutes in controlling the H1N1 virus.

Vantocil FHC is a non-staining, disinfectant detergent concentrate for cleaning all hard surfaces in hospitals. It can also be used in domestic settings and food processing.

Vantocil FHC is based on the active ingredient poly (hexamethylene biguanide hydrochloride (PHMB).

The PHMB antimicrobial has a proven track record in providing both broad spectrum bactericidal and virucidal activity in a diverse range of hygiene products.
