Devastin powder for solution preparation for external use
- Unique antiparasitic drug with antiseptic and antibacterial properties.
- Fish breeding production can be used without restriction after the drug administration.
- Broad-spectrum antiparasitic effect.
Chemical composition and pharmacological properties1 g of Devastin contains 15 mg of povidone iodine as an active ingredient.
It is an antiparasitic drug for external use.
Povidone iodine (a component of the drug) has antiparasitic effect on protozoans and monogeneans localized on body surface and branchiae (including Chilodonella, Trichodina, Dactylogyrus, Gyrodactylus and other fish ectoparasites susceptible to the active ingredient).
Mechanism of Devastin action is related to slow release of atom iodine and iodides (ions interacting with protein amino groups and forming iodamines as a result) from povidone iodine. Consequently, proteins lose their functions causing death of parasites.
IndicationsUse for antiparasitic fish processing with the drug solution.
ContraindicationsDo not use in combination with other drugs and water conditioners.
