The choice of pre-treatments for Aster is being enlarged from June 15, 2016

Last year, Florissant had a new product checked for its effect as a vase life-extending agent for Aster. The Florissant product met all the conditions set, and thus it is being added to the mandatory aspects in the product specification for Aster.



  • The following product is added as permitted substance for pre-treatment of Aster:

o Florissant 810 = code 21 on the label.


Along with Florissant 810, the products with code 11 on the label (basis of sodium dichloroisocyanurate) are also permitted.


  • You must state the correct code of the pre-treatment product in your supply information. With this code the laboratory can check that the pre-treatment product is being used correctly.

o The grading code S65 pre-treatment must be added from today at position 6 in your EDF software package.

o For grading code S65 you must select the correct pre-treatment product by using code 21 on the product’s label = Florissant 810.


This product should be administered according to the instructions for use.
