ABSTRACT
The article discusses a study on the efficacy of common disinfectants against orf virus (OV) in animals. All tests in the study were run in parallel to virus and cytotoxicity controls while an additional test included fetal calf serum (FCS) as an interferant before disinfectant was added. The virucidal activity of the disinfectant Lysoform casa was found similar to Biocidal ZF and sodium hypochlorite. Lysoform casa demonstrated significant activity in the presence of FCS.
