Antimicrobial testing performed in our microbiology and virology laboratory facilities has supported the successful registration of thousands of antimicrobial products. We have extensive experience generating GLP-compliant data that is accepted by global authorities such as the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Health Canada, Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA), and European Chemicals Agency or individual European Member State agencies.

Test against our library of nearly 400 organisms, including SARS-CoV-2, or bring your own in-house organisms.

Antimicrobial Testing Solutions

Our Antimicrobial testing solutions include products ranging from liquids to pre-saturated towelettes to treated surface materials. Along with fogging and misting and pesticide device efficacy testing, our team can build custom tests for your product. Our virology and product chemistry testing services will complement and support your antimicrobial product claims.
