During the 1960-70s, the commercial use of new (and often underdeveloped) biocides as a weapon against micro-organisms in food production and healthcare was prevalent. It was not until the 1980’s when it was proven that these had caused serious biological and environmental harm that worldwide action was taken to largely ban the use of these toxic chemicals from use, although some remained such as formaldehyde and its derivatives (since removed from medical use as causing asthma and cancer).


VIROLYZE has been actively involved in exploring the potential of anolyte as a replacement for chlorine, which has been the most effective disinfectant for over a century, eradicating many harmful diseases caused by population growth and poor living conditions. However, it has been documented and proved that chlorine, when combined with organic material, would produce dangerous carcinogenic products or side effects that do not allow widespread use of this chemical on safety or environmental grounds.


Anolyte has since been used as a water treatment method in commercial and industrial applications, including human waste treatment and oil exploration, ensuring that the primary source has not overly contaminated watercourses and the environment.


Anolyte, a blend of electrolyzed brine and water, was developed to provide a unique electrolyzed water biocidal liquid that provides the cleaning strengths and benefits of chlorine without the dangerous side effects, ensuring no toxic or other side effects to humans or animals.


As anolyte is biodegradable, it is, therefore, not detrimental to the environment or aquatic life.
VIROLYZE Disinfectant remains stable and active in storage for longer time periods, making it an ideal healthcare industry cold sterilization tool with excellent sporicidal, fungicidal, and bactericidal powers while at the same time.

  • Instrument soak and wash 

  • Decontamination of Endoscopes and Washing equipment 

  • Decontamination of water storages and pipework 

  • Podiatry – instrument washes and foot soak 

  • Radiology – wipe down of hard surfaces and decontamination of ultrasound 

  • equipment 

  • Bed and wheelchair washing 

  • Laundry pre-treatments 

  • Fogging clean areas – as part of deep clean or as rapid decontamination 

  • De-biofilm techniques in endoscopes and dental equipment
