KBF99 antibakterielle børster og staldudstyr
KBF99 forhandles i Danmark af: Horse Square
The new range of KBF99 products brings a revolution to Horse Health CareLaunched by Vale Brothers, KBF99 products will assist in the prevention of infection and reinfection of these troublesome and painful diseases. KBF99 has been tested by Coventry University using the standard test for Anti Microbial Activity. Laboratory tests resulted in KBF99 material killing 99% of the bacteria test culture. Any reduction of harmful bacteria and fungus in the stable environment assists in reducing the chances of the diseases being transmitted from horse to horse. The KBF99 product range has been developed to help protect and safeguard horses and in some cases humans from contracting these and other conditions
Strangles, Ringworm, E.Coli and Mycotoxin – these are just a few words which can create anxiety in any horse lover, trainer, barn or riding school owner. If any of these diseases are confirmed the consequences can include:
- Discomfort for your horse
- Large vet bills
- Whole yard/barn quarantined
- Exclusion from competitions
- In some cases loss of income
- In rare cases Strangles can even be fatal
“Strangles is on the rise” reports Horse and Hound and is being spread via contact with buckets, feed and equipment.
How it works
KBF99 coats the surface of plastic with
molecular strands (tiny spikes or swords).
It is also rich in Nitrogen
molecules that carry a positive
charge. These attract the
membranes of Bacteria, Fungi,
Algae and Mycotocins.
The spikes rupture the membrane, killing the
cell, which is then blown apart
KBF99 has been
tested by Coventry
University using the
standard test for Anti
(ISO 2196 : 2007).
KBF99 is at least
99% effective against Strangles, Ring Worm,
E.Coli and Mycotoxin.
Vale Brothers is introducing a full range of KBF99 horse care products including:
- grooming brushes
- feed scoops
KBF99 Effectiveness Against Equine Viruses
“Under laboratory conditions KBF99 technology was found to kill Herpes viruses (that affects humans) and is from the same family as Equine
Herpes Virus (EHV). The structure of EHV cells is described as envelope, meaning that the contents of the cells are encased in a skin or
envelope. The KBF99 technology utilizes molecular strands (forming spikes or swords) to stab such cells and break open the envelope and so kill
the cell. Therefore we are confident that KBF99 will kill the Equine Herpes virus on contact. Equine Influenza virus cells are also envelope
structures. We emphasize this because not all virus cells are envelope structures, others could be described as similar to jelly, which would not be
damaged by an intrusive stabbing activity.
We would always emphasis that although KBF99 products may kill envelope virus structures under laboratory conditions the effectiveness in a
‘field’ situation will be different. KBF99 should always only be seen as an aid to help prevent the spread of infection, as opposed to any form of a
guarantee or any form of a cure. Vale Brothers are unable to make any specific claims with regard to KBF99’s effect on virus cells however we feel
it useful to make a statement summarizing where our assumptions from other research and cell structures are taking us.
Vale Brothers and Coventry University are in the process of costing laboratory tests against specific equine viruses to assess the commercial
viability to conducting such research.”
