Iodine has been in
use for several years by virtue of its excellent antimicrobial
activity against a wide range of micro-organisms which include
bacteria, virus, fungi and protozoa. But elemental iodine as
such has few limitations like its low solubility in water, lack
of residual germicidal activity, irritant vapors, corrosive
(controlled iodine releasing complex)
Iodophors carry all the iodine in a complex form, thereby
leaving small concentrations of free iodine in the solution.
This property helps reduce the drawbacks associated with the
presence of elemental iodine i.e. high toxicity, high level of
irritation and staining power. Iodophors retain the germicidal
action, but not the undesirable properties of iodine.

Microbicidal property of NeoDine is by the iodination of lipids
and oxidation of compounds in the cell membrane and cytoplasm of
the microbes leading to disruption of the structural integrity
of the organism and thereby killing it.
methods of use
To disinfect hard, inanimate non-porous surfaces
For disinfection remove gross filth or heavy soil. For heavily
soiled areas, a thorough preliminary cleaning is required. Use a
dilution of 4 ml of NeoDine per liter of water to walls, floors
and other hard, inanimate non-porous surfaces such as tables,
chairs, countertops, tiles, porcelain etc. with a cloth, mop or
mechanical coarse spray device. When applied with a mechanical
coarse spray device, surface must be sprayed until thoroughly
wetted. Treated surfaces must remain wet for 10 minutes.
For Use in
Prior to disinfection, all poultry and their feeds must be
removed from the premises. Disinfect the farm premises by
spraying 4-8 ml of NeoDine per liter of water. This includes
emptying all troughs, racks and other feeding and water
appliances. Remove all litter and droppings from floors, walls
and other surfaces occupied or traversed by poultry. After 10
minutes of disinfection, ventilate buildings, coops and other
closed spaces. Do not house poultry or employ equipment until
treatment has been absorbed, set or dried.
Poultry Drinking Water
Add 4 ml of NeoDine per 5 liters of drinking water on a daily
basis to fight water-borne pathogens.
Wing rot or gangrenous dermatitis is a bacterial infection
caused primarily by Clostridium septicum, Clostridium
perfringens or Staphylococcus aureus. Occurrence of Wing rot is
more likely associated with an IBD outbreak or late coccidiosis.
One method of reducing the incidence of Wing rot is the use of
NeoDine in the drinking water. One liter of NeoDine is mixed
with 6 liters of water to make a stock solution. The stock
solution is then given to the birds at a rate of 8 ml per liter
of water consumed. The solution is provided to birds once a day
for three alternate days. This is most effective when
administered immediately after the onset of an outbreak or when
an outbreak is expected.
Clean Table Egg Shells
To sanitize clean shell eggs intended for food or food products,
spray with a solution of 8 ml of NeoDine per 5 liters of water.
The solution must be equal to or warmer than the eggs, but not
to exceed 540 C. Wet the eggs thoroughly and allow to drain.
Freshly washed eggs may be sanitized with this compound only if
the eggs are rinsed prior to application of the compound. A
subsequent potable water rinse is not required. Eggs must be
reasonably dry before casing or breaking.
Disinfection of shoes/foot wear prior to entering sheds etc. is
critical to prevent pathogens from entering the premises. Scrape
shoes off the dirt and debris and place in the footbath (20 – 25
ml of NeoDine per liter of water) for 30 seconds prior to
Wash hands thoroughly, prior to sanitizing. Immerse hands in a
solution containing 8 ml of NeoDine per 5 liters of water.
NeoDine destroys many odors as it sanitizes and
disinfects. Swab surfaces with a solution of 4 ml of NeoDine per
liter of water. Allow treated surfaces to air dry.
not use NeoDine for cleaning copper or brass utensils.
not use hot water for making solutions of NeoDine.
Index: Diluting NeoDine in water gives yellow / amber
color, and change of this color indicates that the
cleaning property is lost. Make fresh solution again.
