Zeomic's antiviral function

In addition to having antimicrobial effects on bacteria and mold,Zeomic also has the ability to inactivate viruses. By processing with Zeomic,it is possible to keep the surface of products hygienic.

Viral structure

A virus comprises of nucleic acids (DNA or RNA), which contain genetic information, and capsids, which enfold the nucleic acid (a protein shell). Moreover, there are various enveloped entities, with envelopes made from protein, sugar, and lipids on the ouside of capsids.

Viral structure Typical viruses

Non-enveloped

  • Norovirus
  • Feline calicivirus (norovirus substitute)
  • Poliomyelitis
  • Adenovirus
  • Rotavirus

Enveloped

  • Influenza virus
  • SARS coronavirus
  • Herpes simplex virus
  • Measles morbilli virus
  • Rubella virus
  • Avian influenza

Antiviral test data

1. Data on the viral inactivation ability of Zeomic powder

Virus species Effect
Avian influenza (H5N1) 100% inactivation with contact for 10 minutes at a concentration of 200mg/ml
SARS coronavirus (COV-P8 –P11) 100% inactivation with contact for 2 hours at a concentration of 375μg/ml

2. Data on the viral inactivation ability of non-woven fabric with Zeomic additive (influenza virus)

Test conditions
Tested specimens 1. Non-processed fabric
2. Zeomic-processed non-woven fabric (1g/m2)
Tested virus Influenza A virus (H1N1)

Test results

The viral infectivity (TCID50/ml) was below the detectable lower limit when Zeomic was used!

As one of the viral infectivity measurement methods other than the TCID50 method, there is a test method called the plaque technique.

Inactivity rate of 99.9% or higher

3. Data on the viral inactivation ability of Zeomic added cotton (Feline calicivirus)

Tested condition
Tested specimens 1. Non-processed fabric
2. Zeomic-processed cotton (1g/m2)
Tested virus Feline calicivirus (norovirus substitute virus)
Contact time 2 hours
Testing institute Ecowell Co., Ltd.
