Thepoultrysite spoke to Toby Heppenstall – General Manager, and Arno Schut - Technical Manager of the well-known universal disinfectant brand Halamid®, to get an idea of the exciting progress that has been made in this area.Q: What is Thermal fogging?TH: Thermal fogging is the generation of ultra-fine droplets in a range of 1-50 μm using thermopneumatic energy. Liquid substances are vaporised at the end of fogging barrel and form ultra-fine aerosols by condensing on contact with cool ambient air, on being ejected, to cr...]]> Mon, 15 Jun 2015 11:00:00 +0200 http://www.halamid.com/2207.htm <![CDATA[Halamid® Shown to be Less Corrosive]]> Halamid® Proves Equipment Friendly!   Corrosion is a significant problem with aggressive disinfectants, in particular acidic Peroxygen - Persulfate types. Users find that prolonged use of peroxygen-based disinfectants can result quite quickly in corroded, tarnished and degraded metal equipment in the poultry barn (feeders, fans) and around aquacultural premises (pumps, pipes, grilles). Corroded spraying equipment is another common complaint.   Toby Heppenstall, General Manager at France-based Axcentive sarl, producers of Halamid® explains the background to some recent testing.“Halamid® is well known to be mild to materials and equipment but our distribution network told us that they needed something more visual than a table of data to make this point with new prospective ...]]> Fri, 15 May 2015 11:00:00 +0200 http://www.halamid.com/Halamid-Shown-to-be-Less-Corrosive.htm <![CDATA[Halamid® Makes Waves at VIV Asia]]> Returning from their third successful year exhibiting the Halamid® brand at VIV Asia (March, in Bangkok Thailand),  France-based Axcentive sarl has every reason to be happy with the results.  Visitor numbers were high, and Axcentive collected dozens of leads for potential new customers and candidate distributors.  Halamid® has been regarded as an essential and reliable product for aquaculture for many years. Its unique formula is designed to be powerful against diseases yet safe to fish, shrimp and aquatic environments. Halamid® is used in salt, brackish and fresh water environments and is the biocide of choice in many fish farms. Its biocidal efficacy towards many micro-organisms in the presence of aquatic animals is widely admired – against EMS, White Spot and Costia in...]]> Wed, 15 Apr 2015 11:00:00 +0200 http://www.halamid.com/Halamid-Makes-Waves-at-VIV-Asia.htm <![CDATA[Halamid® to Exhibit at VIV Asia]]> Thu, 12 Mar 2015 11:00:00 +0100 http://www.halamid.com/2203.htm <![CDATA[Lower mortality in tropical fish larvae tests]]> Sat, 28 Feb 2015 11:00:00 +0100 http://www.halamid.com/2204.htm <![CDATA[Halamid® comes to West African Poultry Markets]]> Thu, 12 Feb 2015 10:00:00 +0100 http://www.halamid.com/2201.htm <![CDATA[Halamid® in combat against EMS (update)]]> Sun, 18 Jan 2015 10:00:00 +0100 http://www.halamid.com/2202.htm <![CDATA[Halamid® brings Rapid Action against Salmonella]]> Thu, 15 Jan 2015 10:00:00 +0100 http://www.halamid.com/2200.htm <![CDATA[Poultry 2013, Kiev, Ukraine]]> Tue, 06 May 2014 15:15:00 +0200 http://www.halamid.com/2191.htm <![CDATA[National Veterinary Symposium in Poznan, Poland]]> Tue, 06 May 2014 15:00:00 +0200 http://www.halamid.com/2190.htm <![CDATA[Halamid® for Poultry markets at VIV Europe 2014]]> Tue, 06 May 2014 15:00:00 +0200 http://www.halamid.com/2192.htm <![CDATA[During the 4th quarter Halamid® was in the highlight at Poultry Conferences]]> Tue, 06 May 2014 15:00:00 +0200 http://www.halamid.com/2193.htm <![CDATA[Halamid® Aqua gains exclusive animal drug status in the USA]]> Tue, 06 May 2014 15:00:00 +0200 http://www.halamid.com/2194.htm <![CDATA[Fast and reliable]]> Halamid® is not as aggressive as many other disinfectants which means it is easier to use and safe for equipment and environment. Most other oxidative disinfectants have a high but short term activity. In a poultry house, a contact time of 30 minutes or longer, allows for a high dilution while still obtaining excellent hygiene scores. But in for example a foot bath, pathogens should be killed much faster. Therefore we have tested Halamid® at 5 minutes contact time against a number of relevant viruses (Vaccinia, BVDV, MNV) and at high soiling conditions. In all cases Halamid® passed the test at 1 % use solution (10 C). Halamid® has the unique ability to remain active over a long time, but when time is short it does still provide the necessary biosecurity.]]> Thu, 08 Nov 2012 13:00:00 +0100 http://www.halamid.com/2170.htm <![CDATA[GMP approval]]> The United States FDA concluded in relation to the use of Halamid® Pharma Grade in treating Bacterial Gill Diseases and external Columnaris disease, that our production line for Halamid® Pharma grade is complying with Good Manufacturing Practice based on their audit in 2011.This is not only underlining the quality of our operations, but it is also a big leap towards final approval of our animal drug application (NADA) which will cover freshwater reared salmonids and finfish in the United States only. In many other countries a similar application is covered by biocidal regulations. ]]> Thu, 08 Nov 2012 13:00:00 +0100 http://www.halamid.com/2171.htm <![CDATA[Halamid on display at Eurotier]]> Axcentive® will be presenting its Halamid® – universal disinfectant at the well-known livestock show Eurotier.

The standards for testing evolve quickly, especially now that the new harmonized European biocide law asks for unambiguous efficacy data. Recently we tested against the ECBO virus. Because of its resistance, this virus is often seen as the reference for virucide activity in the veterinary segment. Halamid® passed the test (min. log 4 reduction) at both 10 and 20 degrees C at high level soiling. Further proof that Halamid® is mild and powerful !]]> Thu, 08 Nov 2012 13:00:00 +0100 http://www.halamid.com/2173.htm <![CDATA[Zagro Vietnam to market Halamid® ]]> Axcentive® SARL and Zagro Vietnam are excited to announce they will cooperate on the future sales and market development of Axcentive’s disinfectant product Halamid® in Vietnam.
