Hydrus™ RAS – disinfectant for UK RAS systems

Nova Q have been working with our partners at Hydrus Group for nearly 10 years.

However, we are still finding new ways to utilise this powerful technology. The most recent application draws on our aquaculture experience.

Hydrus™ RAS has been specifically formulated to provide efficient disinfection for RAS systems while still being safe for both employees and stock.

Currently the product is only available in the UK.


We have some exciting trial work going on at the moment on Hydrus™ RAS, including with Pontus Research in South Wales and BMRS in Co. Cork. One study, for instance, is looking at disinfection of bio-media using Hydrus™ RAS, with some very promising data coming out of these trials.
