OVADINE® (PVP Iodine) is a buffered 1% Iodine solution (Iodophor) specifically formulated for use in disinfecting fish eggs.  It contains a 10% Povidone-Iodine (PVP Iodine) complex, which provides 1% available iodine. 

OVADINE® (PVP Iodine) is manufactured according to Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) and Good Laboratory Practices (GLP).  It is a US FDA Low Regulatory Priority (LRP) for use as a disinfectant for fish eggs, including salmon and trout eggs.  It is widely used as a fish egg disinfectant to reduce the transmission of diseases between generations of fish.  OVADINE® (PVP Iodine) fish egg disinfectant is an important part of a complete Biosecurity program.
