Iodine as a Disinfectant against Monodon Baculovirus (MBV)

Manisseri, Mary K and Spann, K M and Lester, R J G (1999) Iodine as a Disinfectant against Monodon Baculovirus (MBV). Asian Fisheries Science , 12 . pp. 105-111.



Virions of monodon baculovirus (MBV) were exposed to 0, 50, 200, 800, 3000 and 10000 ppm iodine at 4°C for 5 min and then used in a bioassay with Penaeu8 monodon postlarvae. Occlusion bodies were identified by histology in shrimp exposed to MBV treated with all iodine concentrations except 10000 ppm. Treatment with 3000 ppm reduced the prevalence and density of infection. However, only 10000 ppm iodine completely inactivated MBV
