Mehta, Chairman & Managing Director said, “The launch of ‘Cororid® Disinfection Solutions’ and our entry into the branded hand sanitizers and disinfectants segment, is aligned with DFPCL vision of providing value-added, high-quality products to our customers. We are confident that Cororid® and our range of products in this segment will emerge as the trusted option to scores of hospitals and institutional customers in India to protect themselves now and in the future. This for us, is a strategic launch and our intent is to provide significant value to Indian customers. Our IPA based brand adheres to global quality standards, and at the same time is reasonably priced, given our backward integration synergies as a Company.”
Cororid® range of disinfectants contain Indian Pharmacopoeia (IP) grade IPA (> 99.8% purity) and is manufactured in FDA compliant, ISO 9001:2015 and GMP certified facilities. IPA is environment-friendly and has good efficacy against various microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi, and viruses. IPA evaporates at a constant rate; thus it can be used at higher concentrations, and is often used as an antiseptic product.
