Bradan Ltd (Gaelic for ‘salmon’) was conceived in 2001 by a group of international fish health scientists, concerned that the inexorable spread of fish pathogens across the world was not being properly controlled by use of outmoded, unsafe and environmentally undesirable disinfection methods and that the interests of the fish and the stresses on them were not being considered. With its headquarters on the Kintyre peninsula, in the heart of Scotland’s fish farming area and some of its finest scenery, but with access to scientists and research facilities throughout the world, the company has built up an enviable range of products. These are based on its own research and on collaboration with leading manufacturers, scientists and fish producers, in the UK, USA, France, Japan, Canada, Chile and Malta.

With its headquarters on the Kintyre peninsula, in the heart of Scotland’s fish farming area and some of its finest scenery, but with access to scientists and research facilities throughout the world, the company has built up an enviable range of products. These are based on its own research and on collaboration with leading manufacturers, scientists and fish producers, in the UK, USA, France, Japan, Canada, Chile and Malta.
Bradan’s various disinfection products, developed by our scientists in association with Antec Ltd (now DuPont) are internationally recognised as providing the best means of controlling both serious animal diseases such as Foot and Mouth Disease and Equine Influenza, notifiable fish pathogens such as ISA and furunculosis and those germs such as Salmonella, E. coli and Listeria which come from animals, fish and shellfish but can cause serious illness in humans.
Virkon Aquatic, Bradan’s flagship product was developed by our scientists for specifically aquatic use. It is available in a variety of formulations for different purposes. It has the highest rating against all aquatic pathogens and yet, when properly applied, is safe for use with food for Listeria control, and in fishery and fish farm conditions, even when live fish are present.

Virkon S the original agricultural disinfectant (WHICH MUST NOT BE USED IN PRESENCE OF FISH OR FOODSTUFFS) is the most widely used independently tested agricultural disinfectant and is the only one directly specified for use in certain notifiable diseases. Read more about Virkon S.
Heat Shock Protein technology arose from the interest of Bradan scientists in utilizing the remarkable abilities of Tex-OE®. This is a patented extract of the prickly pear cactus, originally devised for use by professional scuba divers. Using Protex®, Bradan’s special formulation of this material, we have developed, through extensive scientific studies, that it safely enhances Heat Shock Protein (HSP) levels in humans and in animals. Bradan products incorporating this technology are now available widely used by humans for prevention of jet lag and exercise fatigue and in animal and fish transport and disease stress recovery.
