Its distinctive black and white stripes distinguish it from currently used mosquito nets. Volker Frenz, development chemist for Interceptor® G2, checks a net sample in the laboratory.

Effective Against Resistant Mosquitoes

A combination of preventive measures is essential to eradicate malaria effectively and sustainably, including indoor residual spraying, larvicides and mosquito nets. The Interceptor® G2 net is treated with a new generation insecticide, chlorfenapyr, and is proven to be effective against mosquitoes that are resistant to conventional insecticides, as well as being safe and easy to use.

The discovery and innovation application of chlorfenapyr is a breakthrough for BASF in the fight against malaria.

The World Health Organization

The World Health Organization (WHO) has included Interceptor® G2 on its List of Prequalified Vector Control Products. This means that BASF can bring Interceptor® G2 to market. A second product based on chlorfenapyr, Sylando® 240SC, an indoor spray for walls and ceilings is currently being evaluated by the WHO.
