FeF Benzalkonium Chloride Solution (BKC) 17% USP/NF is a viscous, aqueous solution of quaternary ammonium compounds.
FeF BKC 17% USP/NF is a very efficient germicide which is active against most common micro-organisms, such as bacteria, fungi, algae and enveloped viruses. FeF BKC 17% USP/NF is widely used in pharmaceuticals as the active ingredient (API) due to its anti-microbial effect and as an excipient because of its preserving properties.
