Efficacy of Three Disinfectants against Senecavirus A on Five Surfaces and at Two Temperatures

Reprinted as posted on UMN Swine Disease Eradication Center's Swine in Minnesota blog

What disinfectant to use against Senecavirus A? Does it vary based on surface type or temperature? These are the questions that a group of researchers from the University of Minnesota - Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory are answering in the latest issue of the Journal of Swine Health and Production (JSHAP).

The project tested:
  • 3 disinfectants: household bleach, a phenolic disinfectant and a quaternary ammonium - aldehyde
  • 5 surfaces: aluminum, stainless steel, rubber, cement and plastic
  • 2 temperatures: 25°C (77°F) and 4°C (39°F)
