HATCHERY DISINFECTION SOLUTIONS

Ambicide™

Ambicide™ provides a flexible solution for hatchery surfaces, equipment, vehicles, and egg dipping or spray disinfection at low temperatures and in the presence of organic challenge.

Ambicide’s non-staining, non-tainting dual action formulation provides a broad spectrum of activity against viruses, bacteria, fungi and spores. Its twin chain quaternary ammonium and tertiary compounds makes it the ideal solution for use in the disinfection of vehicles transporting food grade grain, and on food contact surfaces.




General Properties

Ambicide™

  • Dual action formulation with twin chain quaternary
    ammonium and tertiary alkylamine compounds
  • Broad spectrum of activity
  • Specifically developed for use in the hatchery and food processing environments
  • Can be applied as a foam, spray or egg dip 
  • Can be used through pressure washers and spraying equipment
  • Non staining and non-tainting
  • pH 7.9

Composition

A synergistic and unique blend of tertiary alkylamine and a twin chain quaternary ammonium compound with added foam booster to provide excellent foaming characteristics.

Mode of action

Ambicide™  works by disrupting the cytoplasmic membrane, resulting in loss of vital intracellular constituents and precipitation of cell contents, leading to cell death.

Instructions for use

Surface disinfection

The level of disease-causing organisms present after basic cleaning can remain high enough to offer a serious disease challenge. Using a disinfectant independently proven effective against viruses, bacteria, fungi and spores, such as Ambicide™, is essential.

Spraying

Manually prepare a solution between 0.5 - 1% (1:200 - 1:100 dilution) of Ambicide™ or calibrate your dosing equipment to achieve the required dilution. Using either a knapsack sprayer or pressure washer on a low pressure setting, spray the disinfectant solution on to pre-cleaned surfaces at an application rate of 300ml/m2

Foaming

Manually prepare a 2% (1:50 dilution) solution of Ambicide™ or calibrate your dosing equipment to achieve the required dilution. Using a pressure washer with a foaming lance apply Ambicide™ disinfectant solution to pre-cleaned surfaces at an application rate of 250ml/m2.

Egg disinfection

Setters and egg stores containing eggs

Ambicide™

Manually prepare a 1% (1:100 dilution) solution of Ambicide™ or calibrate your dosing equipment to achieve the required dilution. Using either a mechanical mist/cold fog generator, knapsack sprayer or pressure washer on a fine mist setting, apply Ambicide™ disinfectant solution for a period of 5-10 seconds per 3m3 to wet the surface of the egg or equipment.

Egg disinfectant dip

Manually prepare a 1% (1:100 dilution) solution of Ambicide™ using warm water (38-41ºC) in a suitable container and dip hatching eggs for 2-3 minutes prior to placement in the hatching baskets.

Vehicle disinfection

Ambicide™

Manually prepare a 1% (1:100 dilution) solution of Ambicide™ or calibrate your dosing equipment to achieve the required dilution. Using either a pressure washer or knapsack sprayer on a fine mist setting, apply the disinfectant solution to all surfaces of the vehicle including; wheel arches, mudguards and any exposed chassis.
