An antiseptic preparation effective against bacteria, fungi and viruses. For use in open wound sites caused by e.g. trauma, muelsing, castration, de-budding and de-homing.  Also for abscesses, foot rot, dart wound, de-gloving injuries as well as over primary closure sites.

It incorporates an insecticide to repel from wound sites such as biting flies and ticks.  It is effective to eliminate infestations due to fly strike (the larvae migrate out of the wound without the need for mechanical elimination) whilst at the same time creating an effective antiseptic barrier and effective repellent to further fly strikes.


The antimicrobial action of the preparation is based upon the proprietary branded F10 compound. The mechanism of action of F10 is derived from those of each component taken separately, in addition to those due to the additive synergistic action of all components combined. At the concentrations in the product F10 has been assessed as giving a >log5 reduction in microbial counts against gram positive and gram negative bacteria; fungi, yeasts and moulds; enveloped and non-enveloped viruses; bacterial and fungal spores.  The group of keratinophylic fungi is very large, but only two genera, know as dermatophytes, are known to cause disease (“ringworm”) in animals.


The insecticidal action is based upon cypermethrin (a pyrethroid) and aided by piperonyl butoxide. In the testing phases the indicator species used was Lucilia cuprina, a commonly occurring blow fly species. As soon as the larvae were sprayed they immediately began to migrate from the test site and within 30 minutes were dead. Other tests on L.cuprina eggs resulted in a 100% kill. The product was equally effective against adult flies and showed a 77% kill in 15 minutes rising to 100%
within 30 minutes. Cypermethrin is a broad spectrum insecticide and is effective against other insects, e.g. biting flies, fleas, mosquitoes, and ticks.
