Apiam Animal Health’s
Zoono sanitiser protects
for up to 30 days
ONE of Australia’s leading veterinary ser- vice providers, Apiam Animal Health, has se- cured the Australian distribution rights of a revolutionary surface sanitiser and protection nanotechnology.
The new-generation dis- infectant –Zoono Z-71 Microbe Shield – has been demonstrated to protect against bacterial, viral and fungal pathogens for up to 30 days.

It is ideal to be used as part of a dairy farm’s san- itisation program, whether that is:
The TGA approval comes on the back of re- search conducted in the United Kingdom against a COVID-19 surrogate, feline coronavirus, where Z-71 Microbe Shield was able to reduce the viral levels by over 99.99 per- cent.
“Laboratory tests are currently progressing to establish the duration of protection that the Z-71 Microbe Shield product will have against a COVID-19 surrogate.

Apiam managing di- rector Dr Chris Richards said the biggest differ- ence between this sani- tiser and others on the market is it continues to remain effective over time through killing pathogens by mechanical rather than chemical action.
“In studies in the US, Apiam has been able to demonstrate prevention of clinical disease against the pig coronavirus, PED virus, for over 30 days following a single applica- tion of the product to all surfaces.

“Both mechanical and chemical sanitisers will kill most pathogens pretty much straight away but the fact it has been tested to be effective against many germs for up to 30 days on surfaces is a major breakthrough.”

Apiam acquired the dis- tribution rights for live- stock and animal health industries in Australia in November last year for the disinfectant technology, which is manufactured in New Zealand by fellow ASX-listed company Zoono Group Limited.
“We were initially at- tracted to the Zoono products for use by our network of vets to sani- tise and protect piggeries, poultry sheds and live- stock systems, as well as for use in biosecurity programs with the tech- nology,” Dr Richards said.
Dr Richards said Apiam has also been using its current supply of Z-71 Mi- crobe Shield to sanitise its own offices and veteri- nary hospitals around the country.
“Veterinary practices are seen as an essential service and we want to ensure we make it as safe as possible for our staff and clients,” he said.
Dr Richards said there had been strong demand from both Apiam clients and the greater commu- nity for the use of its prod- ucts, and that Apiam was providing fogging ser- vices where requested to assist other essential busi- nesses and workplaces to improve their biosecurity and hygiene systems.
Dr Richards said Apiam had plenty of stock of Z-71 Microbe Shield and was expecting to get additional supplies of both Z-71 Mi- crobe Shield and Zoono’s hand sanitiser in coming weeks, which would be available through Apiam clinics and at countryvet.
