 Mode of Action

 DuPontTM Virkon® S does not elicit a specific toxicological effect on the target organism, instead it achieves deactivation and/or destruction of the target organism through general oxidative disruption of key structures and compounds vital to normal activity (e.g. proteins and lipids).

There is no evidence to suggest that bacterial disease causing organisms develop resistance towards Virkon® S as opposed to other disinfectant types.
