Dear Tracey,

Wescodyne is the brand name an iodine-based disinfectant produced by Steris

Make sure you are follow the directions on the label and you investigate the
effectiveness of Wescodyne on the target organism(s). Your facility's
biological safety officers can discuss this issue with you.

The Steris Web site has a nice chart that summarizes disinfectants although
the chart is focused on Steris products.
