Is specially designed for industrial use, and is a unique chlorinated blend specially formulated for the cleaning of eggs in agricultural buildings such as hatcheries
Egg hygiene begins on the layer farm and needs to be strictly controlled to prevent microbial contamination during handling. Eggs can become contaminated on contact with nest boxes, during egg storage and transportation. Eggshell hygiene is critical in improving hatchability. Egg sanitization can improve hatchability by ~3%.

Manual Egg Sanitisation
Prepare a dipping solution by dissolving 5-10mg OVAQ solution per liter of water maintained at a temperature of 100°F (35°C). Place eggs in plastic or wire baskets and immerse for 10-15 minutes.
Machine Egg Sanitisation
When using an oscillating machine, immerse eggs for a maximum of 10 minutes. Prepare fresh solution after each cycle or when it becomes visibly soiled. Do not rinse after sanitising / washing eggs. Allow eggs to air dry to form a protective coating before setting or packing.
Store in the original container below 25°C. In a dry well-ventilated area away from sources of heat or ignition. Protect from direct sunlight.
