We understand BIOSECURITY as a set of measures that we put into practice in our farm, with the aim of preventing and controlling the entry and spread of potential pathogens.

And just as they will be applied to each farm, they must be specifically personalized to the individual circumstances of each facility. It is true that in many cases they will follow similar patterns, but each place, with its specific characteristics, will make it necessary to adapt this type of measures to a greater or lesser extent, which is why we understand BIOSECURITY as:

Something moldable, which needs to be constantly reviewed to being able to adapt it to the needs of each process, achieving the ultimate goal of prevention and control of pathogens.

Continue after advertising.

More and more places are opting for innovative forms of application that provide greater safety to the process, reaching areas of difficult access much more easily than through more traditional methods, simplifying the work of the operator, and thus also reducing the possibility of human error that could compromise safety, they can even also be added to the usual process of Cleaning and Disinfection as a second disinfection or terminal disinfection.

For this purpose, an innovative method has arisen that incorporates ADS (Airborne Disinfection of Surfaces and Environments) by using the OX-DISAIR® equipment, which is capable of carrying out disinfection of both, environments and surfaces, by air, reaching all places autonomously and optimizing the amount of disinfectant to be used.

Thus allowing us to minimize costs related to the use of personnel and the consumption of biocidal product.

This means, once again:

In short, new elements, which although they would have been cleaned and disinfected in the same way, will suppose, together with the movement of operators, a risk for the introduction of possible pathogens.

For example, a spray application would result in a totally wet litter, being unfeasible for production.

That is why we must look for ways to apply that
