Oxine

Oxine is a highly refined blend of oxychloro species containing purified sodium chlorite. When activated, chlorine dioxide is produced, greatly enhancing Oxine’s antimicrobial activity. With applications in the food processing and water treatment industries, Oxine displays broad-spectrum antimicrobial activity, proven effective against E. coli 0157:H7, Salmonella, Aspergillus, Listeria, Staphylococcus and Pseudomonas, among others. This product is especially suited for the removal am subsequent control of biofilm. Oxine has a myriad of EPA. FDA and USDA approvals, Kosher certification, and organic certification in the state of Washington.
