ANK neutral anolyte


The solution

ANK Neutral Anolyte is a powerful yet non-toxic sanitiser and disinfectant for food processing plants and other critical hygiene areas. 

Anolyte is alcohol-free.  It is unique because of its natural active ingredient, hypochlorous acid.  Hypochlorous acid (HOCl) is the same chemical produced by our own immune systems to fight infections and kill invasive organisms.  It is highly effective against the main pathogens.  You can learn more about HOCl in this article: Does sanitiser have to contain alcohol?  If you would like more help understanding how this sanitiser works, please contact Denver at denver@presco.co.nz.

Anolyte is very effective against a wide range of pathogens with a near 100% kill of known bacteria, yeasts, moulds, fungus, mildews; including:

  • Listeria
  • Salmonella
  • Campylobacter
  • coli
  • Coliforms
  • Legionnaires
  • Staphylococcus
  • Aureus
  • Pseudomonas Aug. Bacillus subtilis
  • Candida,

and many more.

What are your alternatives?

You could use a sodium hypochlorite sanitiser.
Sodium hypochlorite is commonly known as chlorine or bleach.  Along with hypochlorous acid, bleach is the most effective sanitiser, killing all five pathogen types – bacteria, viruses, spores, fungi and biofilm.  However, sodium hypochlorite is very toxic.  Learn more about sodium hypochlorite for sanitising here

You could use an alcohol-based sanitiser.
Alcohol-based sanitisers commonly contain the active ingredients ethanol and isopropanol.  Ethanol has been proven to be more effective against viricidal activity, and Isopropyl has is shown to be more efficacy against bacterial activity.  These sanitisers are effective against bacteria and viruses.  However, the alcohol strips moisture from the skin, which can cause irritation and reduce your natural bacterial resistance to pathogens. 

You could use Quaternary Ammonium Compounds (QACs)
QACs are becoming more widely used as people stop using sodium hypochlorite due to its toxicity.  QACs are effective surface sanitisers and are effective against bacteria, enveloped viruses (i.e. Coronavirus) and some fungi.  However, some of these are very dangerous.  They are also banned in some industry, including the food industry.  Learn more about the positives and negatives of QAC sanitisers here


Frequently asked questions

Doesn’t sanitiser have to contain alcohol? 
No, it does not.  Please read this very informative article all on this topic.  You will see in the diagram below, HOCl and Sodium Hypochlorite (bleach) are the only two types of sanitisers that kill every one of the five pathogens.  Neither of these sanitisers contain alcohol, although bleach is very toxic, and HOCl is not. 



How does Anolyte work?
The active ingredient in Anolyte is hypochlorous acid.  This natural ingredient explodes the cell wall of all pathogens and destroys them.  Read more about this process here

Does Anolyte kill viruses? 
Anolyte itself has not been tested against viruses.  However, its active ingredient – hypochlorous acid – has.  ‘Though viruses are not technically living organisms, they too are destroyed by hypochlorous acid.’ (British Dental Journal – https://www.nature.com/articles/sj.bdj.2018.302). Therefore, we assume Anolyte kills viruses. 


How much does Anolyte sanitiser cost?

All prices are excluding G.S.T. and freight.

5L | $50.05
20L | $118.69
200L | $384.67


What are the limitations of Anolyte sanitiser?

Anolyte is affected by organic soil.  Organic soil, such as dirt, consumes sanitiser.  Therefore, if you sanitise a surface that has organic soil on it, the sanitiser will work immediately on the soil, and then be consumed.  If you sanitise a surface that is clean – has no organic soil on it – the sanitiser will stay on the surface for longer, having more time to work.  It will not be consumed until it encounters organic soil.
