Lucas Products Corporation, manufacturer of disinfectants and personal safety products, today announced that all LUCAS-CIDE® disinfectants appear on the newly released EPA’s List of Disinfectants for Emerging Viral Pathogens to kill monkeypox when used according to the label directions. On Monday, May 23, 2022 the EPA triggered its emerging viral pathogen (EVP) guidance in response to recent cases of monkeypox in the United States.

Monkeypox belongs to a group of viruses that is more susceptible to disinfectants than other types of viruses. While there are no disinfectants registered for use against monkeypox, all products with EVP claims have been tested against viruses that are more difficult to kill than monkeypox.

“We are proud that we provide peace of mind to our LUCAS-CIDE clients with the validation of appearing on the EPA’s List of Disinfectants for Emerging Viral Pathogens (EVPs),” said Robert Urfer, Owner and President of Lucas Products. “Our commitment to our clients is to continue investing in the latest chemistry, efficacy, and testing in disinfectant safety. We’re proud to achieve that with LUCAS-CIDE.”
