MICROBE-LIFT/BSDT is the pre- eminent broad spectrum malachite green and formalin treatment. It is formulated differently than any other malachite green and formalin mix.
Malachite green and formalin are two drugs that are more effective and less toxic in combination than when used individually. This is the definition of synergism. What makes MICROBE-LIFT/BSDT the preeminent product in this field is the fact that it is formulated with malachite green chloride, instead of the more toxic oxalate salt. As with any malachite green and formalin  treatment, do NOT use with other medications.
MICROBE-LIFT/BSDT is the safest and most effective treatment for the control of diseases caused by Ichthyophthirius (Ich), Costia, Trichodina, Chilodonella, Oodinium and fungal infections.
This is not an economic poison and is not intended for use as such.

MICROBE-LIFT/BSDT is the ONLY malachite green and formalin treatment that can be used in water temperatures as low as 50o F, thus allowing you to treat in early spring and late fall.
Directions for Use
Add 3.5 fl.oz. (100 mL) of MICROBE-LIFT/BSDT for every 1,000 gallons of water to be treated. As with all disease treatments an initial partial water change of at least 25% must be made; a nearly total water change (>90%) will greatly improve the effectiveness. Remove all carbon filtration just before adding MICROBE-LIFT/BSDT, and replace the carbon at the conclusion of the treatment.  Treatment may be repeated daily following at least a 25% water change. The treatment may be repeated every 8 to 12 hours depending upon the response of the fishes to the treatment. Do NOT bypass your bio-filters, allowing a more comprehensive treatment of the entire pond system.
MICROBE-LIFT/BSDT is less toxic to koi and goldfish than any other malachite green and formalin product on the market.  DANGER: May be harmful or FATAL if swallowed
ANTIDOTE: If swallowed call a physician or Poison Control Center. Drink 1 or 2 glasses of water or milk and induce vomiting by touching the back of the throat with a finger, or, if available administer syrup of ipecac.
Do NOT induce vomiting or give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.
In case of contact, immediately flush skin or eyes with plenty of running water for at least 15 minutes; for eyes get immediate medical attention.
