WaterShield™ is active against most bacteria, mycoplasma, protozoa, algae, fungi, and yeast.
WaterShield™ can also be used in regular water/heating baths and is compatible with common laboratory surfaces, e.g. tin plated iron, chrome, nickel steel, high grade steel and copper.
The water additive contains quaternary ammonium compounds and surfactants as disinfecting and cleaning ingredients, but no aldehydes, phenols, alcohols or azides. The reagents do not evaporate. All ingredients are safe and do not cause any irritating effects to the skin when used in the recommended concentration. No unpleasant odour noticeable.
Simply add the content of a 10 ml bottle of WaterShield™ directly to 2 liters of deionized water.
The reagent is usually active for 4 weeks. A blue stain indicates the status of the additive. In case of increasing bioburden a renewal of the water and the additive is required.
