Interceptor® is a mosquito net recommended by the World Health Organization for malaria control.
A polymer binder system is combined with Fendona® insecticide and applied directly to the fibers of the Interceptor® nets in a unique treatment process. Over time, the active ingredient is slowly exposed on the polymer surface and rapidly knocks down, kills or repels mosquitoes as they come into contact with the net. This controlled availability of the insecticide ensures long-term effectiveness for up to 3 years, and the net delivers its protection even after 20 washes.
Interceptor has been evaluated by the World Health Organization (WHO) and a full recommendation has been given for its use in malaria prevention and control. Interceptor exceeds the WHO Pesticide Evaluation Scheme requirements for long-lasting insecticidal nets. Study results show that Interceptor nets achieve 100% knockdown at one-hour post exposure and 100% prevention of blood feeding even after 20 washes.
