Introducing our first dual active ingredient net providing the highest protection against pyrethroid-resistant mosquitoes
Long-lasting insecticidal nets (LLINs) are a powerful and effective tool in malaria prevention but the disease, spread by the Anopheles mosquito, remains a major threat in the face of widespread pyrethroid resistance. PermaNet Dual combines two insecticides, chlorfenapyr and deltamethrin, with two modes of action that are proven to be the most effective type of mosquito net for people living in areas with high malaria prevalence and high pyrethroid resistance.
Its launch opens up access to the new dual active ingredient (AI) LLIN segment and will accelerate the deployment of a new generation of tools to achieve faster malaria elimination.
PermaNet Dual is Vestergaard’s first dual active LLIN and offers the highest protection against pyrethroid-resistant mosquitoes.
Combines two insecticides with two modes of action, chlorfenapyr (pyrrole) and deltamethrin (pyrethroid).
Laboratory tests and experimental hut trials have proven that PermaNet Dual kills up to 70% more mosquitoes than pyrethroid-PBO nets, depending on mosquito species and insecticide resistance profiles.
The PermaNet manufacturing platform will enable us to produce PermaNet Dual at scale, supporting the expansion of the dual active ingredient net segment.
8. PermaNet Dual, together with PermaNet 2.0 and PermaNet 3.0, makes us the first company with a fully comprehensive portfolio of LLINs.
