New antimicrobial disinfectant promises to protect poultry throughout growth cycle

The international poultry industry now has an antimicrobial disinfectant solution, Goldshield, that kills harmful microorganisms on treated hard, porous & non-porous surfaces and that prevents cross contamination via a long-lasting residual effect.

Goldshield (GS) is a patented, water-stable, non-flammable, non-leaching, non-migrating, odourless, colourless antimicrobial disinfectant and sanitising formulation.

As poultry companies eliminate antibiotic-injected birds, consequences include the loss of inventory and severe reduction in feed conversion. The elimination of antibiotics has created a demand for a product that reduces the probability of infecting birds by simply reducing exposure to them and protecting against reinfection. That’s precisely the “Goldshield Solution” in a nutshell, residual disinfecting action. The poultry challenge is that the existing disinfectants have no residual action.

Goldshield’s core technology has residual action for the full growth cycle (typically 34 days), it remains active in organic matter and will help in feed conversion while minimising birds being infected.

AP Goldshield LLC markets its poultry-industry products to US and international poultry breeders, grow houses and egg producers.

The GS products have reached full commercialisation stage, ready for fulfilment of any-sized customer orders.

GS poses no risk of genetic adaptation. The product has cidal activity as demonstrated in multiple studies on a broad spectrum of organisms. The active ingredient forms in a nano-assembly of compounds a protective and invisible layer on the surface and is covalently bound to it, making the surface antimicrobial.

Thanks to its long-lasting residual effects, GS does not require the frequent reapplications typically associated with competing products. The cost savings can become very substantial.
