Summary

Acidic electrolyzed water (EW) (pH 2.6-5.eight) and alkaline EW (pH 11.2-12.1) have been examined as potential disinfectants towards foot-and-mouth illness virus (FMDV). Utilizing acidic EW with pH 2.6 and alkaline EW with pH>11.7, the viral titer decreased in vitro by >four.zero log values, 2 min after the virus was combined with EW at a 1:10 dilution. The robust virucidal impact of acidic EW (pH 2.6), however not that of alkaline EW (>11.7), appeared to depend upon the chlorine degree within the resolution. Genetic evaluation revealed that viral RNA was considerably lowered, particularly by alkaline EW.
