Virox Technologies Provides Infection Prevention Guide for Cannabis Facilities

Another milestone has been reached in the Canadian cannabis industry as  Virox® Technologies, makers of SHYIELD™ introduced a new guide aimed at supporting licensed  producers in achieving the high standards for cleaning and disinfection set out by regulators. While the industry sets high compliance standards for disinfection, little guidance exists on how  to achieve this. Infection Prevention for Cannabis Facilities: Cleaning and Disinfection Guide,  developed in consultation with experts and backed by peer-reviewed research provides  important information and easy-to-implement steps to prevent common infections that can  have costly consequences for cannabis facilities.

This guide lays out the fundamentals of effective infection prevention, specifically through the  lens of cannabis facilities – making it an especially relevant and essential resource. From protecting plant health to human health, the guide aims to equip key stakeholders to  make informed decisions about their infection prevention protocols and feel confident that  they have created the ideal environment for their employees and their yields.

The guide contains:
– Cleaning and disinfection overview
– 7 steps for optimizing infection prevention
– How to select the ideal disinfectant
– 10 common disinfection mistakes and how to avoid them
– Correct use and validation of disinfection methods

The guide is intended to be a resource to raise awareness within the cannabis community  around infection prevention and the proper use of disinfectants. As an industry still in its  infancy, we want to empower facilities to review and improve current protocols for cleaning  and disinfection.

“This disinfection guide is a valuable tool to have in every cannabis quality professional’s toolbox.”
– Sacha Hockenhull, Head of the C45 Association

“This booklet is a great head-start for new or existing growers from a very credible source.”
– George Dickinson, Co-Founder & Consultant of Growhaus Projects (formerly known as  CannaPro)

“The disinfection guide provides a great foundation for a proactive and effective sanitation program.”
– Jarred Marsh, Licensed Producer Consultant at CCS Green
