Bacillus Anthracis B


FAM 30 is approved by the UK Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food for disinfection against anthrax (Bacillus anthracis) at the 'General Orders' dilutions of   1:180

This however is a qualified recommendation and only exisits against the Bacterial form of the organism.;
Anthrax exisits in two forms, firstly a spore , in which the organism is dormant and extremly hard to destroy and secondly  after exposure to moiture and nutrient ( such as skin contact) the spore changes into a bacterium , which is very nasty, but which is easier to kill
The ministry recommendation is for the bacterium form only 

We have not had Fam 30 tested against Anthrax in the spore form and it is probable that the dilution would need to be almost neat,  for a contact time of several hours .

When Diluted at 1;180 Fam 30 could be used to disinfect any surface or equipment which may have come into contact with microbial contamination

However, care should be taken with aluminium  which must be rinsed with clean water afer contact with Fam 30 .since residues may tarnish lustrous metal finishes.
Fam 30 is also not suitable for continuous skin contact at strong dilution levels due to its low PH and must be washed off with clean water .
