Next Generation of Antimicrobial Treatment

Zoono (also called Microbe Shield (Z-71 or Zoonocide) and its companion product Germ Free24 Hand Sanitiser are unique antimicrobial products derived from technology originally developed by German scientists during the 1930’s.

The active ingredient was initially developed to control the spread of microbial infections and prevent algal growth and until the end of World War 2, this cutting edge technology was literally a military secret.

Zoono Microbe Shield surface spray can be applied as a mist, as a spray, wiped on or used as a textile dip. It does not require mixing and is safe to handle and safe to store. When the Microbe Shield application dries, the micro thin coating forms a very strong bond with the treated surface. It can be likened to having millions of sword shaped “road spikes” on the surface – each of which will attract, pierce and kill the membrane of the pathogen by a method known as lysis. The same Zoono molecule is capable of attacking new bacteria cells again and again – with only a single application. Because it does not kill the pathogens by poisoning with toxic chemicals or dehydrating through alcohol, they cannot adapt to it so there is no possibility of immunity developing so there is no possibility of superbugs forming.

Microbe Shield is odourless, non-leaching, environmentally safe, non-corrosive and whilst completely safe for humans and animals, is deadly for a wide range of micro organisms including bacteria, mould, fungi and viruses.

The list of pathogens killed or inactivated by Zoono technology over extended periods of time includes but is not limited to:

  • Staphylococcus aureus
  • Pseudomonas aeruginosa
  • Escherichia coli (E Coli)
  • Proteus vulgaris
  • Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA)
  • Vancomycin Resistant Enterococcus (VRE)
  • Legionella pneumoniae
  • Salmonella cholera suis
  • Cryptosporidium parvum (oocysts)
  • Citrobacter Freudii MS2
  • Listeria monocytogenes ACM98
  • Pseudomonas aeruginosa NCTC 6749
  • H1N1 (and its derivitives)
  • Norovirus

Microbe Shield has been tested by numerous independent laboratories, universities and test facilities around the globe including the Australian and NZ Government Food Safety Authority. It has been proven to have a long lasting antimicrobial effect whilst having a similar LD50 toxicity level to that of Vitamin C.

Microbe Shield is made from the most basic of raw organic compounds. Today, it has been re-engineered into a water based solution which provides the antibacterial, antiviral, anti fungal and anti algal protection of a broad spectrum antimicrobial sanitiser that continuously kills for up to one month from each application whilst being totally non-toxic for humans and animals alike.

There are currently two main products in the Zoono portfolio: Zoono Microbe Shield (Z-71) and Germ Free24 Hand Sanitiser. Zoono is a surface sanitiser that has application in almost every lifestyle environment including but definitely not limited to:

  • Child care, Schools, Aged care facilities
  • Hospitals, Doctor Surgeries, Dentists, Vet Clinics etc
  • Hospitality – Restaurants, Bars and Cafes
  • Sports Facilities
  • Entertainment and leisure
  • Shopping Malls
  • Transportation
  • Marine
  • Food preparation and servery areas
  • Workplace environments
  • Households, storage and caravans

Germ Free24 is a hand sanitiser that also uses this cutting edge technology to provide germ free protection for 24 hours from just one application. Tests have proven Germ Free24’s effectiveness against bacteria and fungi including the deadly super bugs - MRSA (Golden staph), C-Diff and VRE – and, for extended periods. There is currently no other hand sanitiser on the market that can currently make this claim.

Manufacturing: Zoono products are manufactured to exacting standards in both the U.S.A. and New Zealand. Zoonois now the 11th generation of the original technology – the products are now water based with greatly improved efficacy and longevity plus a 3 year shelf life.
