Contents on the CD Rom

  • Iodophor a complex of iodine and a surface-active agent that releases iodine gradually and serves as a disinfectant.
  • Iodine compounds or iodophors are fast-acting and effective against all bacteria.
  • They are relatively nontoxic, non-irritating to skin, and stable.
  • Iodophors are widely used in hand sanitizing solutions.
  • Iodophor solutions may stain porous surfaces and some plastics.
  • Iodophors are used both as antiseptics and disinfectants.
  • An iodophor is a combination of iodine and a solubilizing agent or carrier; the resulting complex provides a sustained-release reservoir of iodine and releases small amounts of free iodine in aqueous solution.
  • An Iodophor is a preparation containing iodine complexed with a solubilizing agent, such as a surfactant or povidone.
  • Iodophors are prepared by mixing iodine with the solubilizing agent; heat can be used to speed up the reaction.
  • Diluted iodophor is often used by brewers and winemakers to sanitize equipment and bottles. Its major advantage over other sanitizers is that when used in proper proportions it evaporates directly from solution to gas, and hence leaves no residues.
  • Diluted iodophor is also used extensively in the dairy industry.
  • Iodophors were developed in the 1950s to overcome the side effects associated with elemental iodine.
  • Iodophors are compounds in which iodine is carried by a surface active agent.
  • An iodophor enhances the bactericidal action of iodine and reduces the Odour.
  • Iodophors are wide spectrum bactericides, a good tuberculocide, fungicide and virucide.
  • Iodine solutions and iodophors have been used primarily as antiseptics for many years.
  • Aqueous iodine solutions can be easily made up, and they as well as iodophors are readily available in most countries.
  • Iodophors consist of a stable combination of molecular iodine or triiodide with a transporter of high molecular weight.
  • The use of iodophors in chronic wounds met two main objectives: infection prevention/treatment and wound healing.
  • Manufacturers of iodophors should be aware that pipes or other surfaces colonized with bacteria may be a source of contamination of their products.
  • Povidone-iodine is the most common iodophor and is available globally.
  • In the world of sanitizers, you will find a wide range of sanitizing agents available to home brewers.
  • One of the favorites is a halogen sanitizer/germicide called Iodophor.
  • Iodophor is a federally approved contact sanitizer that is used widely by restaurant, food production, and dairy industry.
  • Iodophor’s orgins come from its usage in the dairy industry. It became a popular dairy germicide which then became widely used in the food processing industry.
  • Iodophor is used widely in the beverage industry, as it is very effective on glass and metal containers.
  • Iodophor post-milking teat disinfectants have consistently increased iodine in milk.
  • Hubble & Mein found that iodine residues in milk, on farms using iodophors for teat disinfection only and various washing techniques, averaged levels of 160 μg/L in summer-autumn and 110 μg/L in winter-spring.
