EDMONTON, Alberta–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Today, Voran Group Ventures Ltd (“Voran Group”) announces the receipt of marketing authorization from Health Canada for new efficacy claims for its Canadian-made disinfectant solution, Bacoban™ (106) Cleaner and Disinfectant. The new label reflects Voran’s commitment to providing Canadians with the highest standard of protection against the growing threat of infectious diseases.

An important recognition of efficiency

In order for a product on the Canadian market to claim to kill a specific pathogen, Health Canada must conduct a data review and secure approval. Bacoban™ (106) Cleaner & Disinfectant, a multifunctional surface cleaner and disinfectant, has been tested by an independent and accredited laboratory using internationally recognized standardized methods following Health Canada testing guidelines. Data shows that Bacoban™ (106) kills SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, in 30 seconds12. The approval means that Voran Group can expand the sale of Bacoban™ (106) to consumers who must purchase from Health Canada’s “List of proven disinfectants for use against COVID-193. The efficacy data presented demonstrate that Bacoban™ (106) meets Health Canada’s requirements for broad-spectrum disinfectants and supports the use of Bacoban™ (106) in hospitals and healthcare facilities.

Chelsey Reschke, President and CEO of Voran Group, stated, “This is a great result for our team. We are excited to deliver this new label to our distributors and users, a project that our team has been working on for months of diligence to make it happen. Improving the cleaning and disinfection process is a critical step in improving the health and well-being of all Canadians, and with a SARS-CoV-2 kill time of 30 seconds, Bacoban™ (106) outperforms ca. 95% of national brands in the market. We also recognize the viral threat posed by monkeypox, another lipid-based enveloped virus. According to Health Canada’s interim guidance on monkeypox in healthcare settings4cleaning and disinfection with a Health Canada-approved disinfectant is recommended, following the manufacturer’s recommendations.”
