Lonza Hygiene and Preservation has developed several disinfectant formulations with proven efficacy against Norovirus while maintaining low odor and broad materials compatibility even with frequent use.

Specific Lonzagard formulations are available, that offer the following benefits :

  • Efficacious: Proven Norovirus efficacy
  • Convenient: Wipes, sprays, concentrates
  • Low odor: Compared to bleach and peracetic acid
  • Low corrosion: Allows more frequent use

Norovirus is highly virulent and can be transmitted by contact with an infected person, contaminated surfaces or objects, or by consuming contaminated food or water.

The virus diffuses quickly in confined environments, such as cruise ships, hospitals, schools and long-term care homes. The close quarters, communal high-touch surfaces and extended stays of these settings offer the perfect conditions for the transmission of Norovirus.

Hand washing alone is not enough to inactivate Norovirus, as the contaminated surfaces and objects (e.g. door knobs, hand rails, toilet flush levers, etc.) can remain infectious for weeks. Proper disinfection of these surfaces is key to breaking the chain of infection.
