Antimicrobial Product Chemistry


Accuratus Lab Services offers our clients full product chemistry analysis including chemical characterization of active ingredients, testing of product-specific impurities, physical chemistry analysis and storage stability testing. Our product chemistry testing capabilities include a broad range of antimicrobial active ingredients (AIs) or preservatives.

Whether your antimicrobial product is based upon quaternary ammonium compounds, chlorine, hypochlorite, hydrogen peroxide, or peracid chemistries, Accuratus Lab Services can measure your AI. This allows us to correlate your AI concentrations to microbiological or viral efficacy results – which is especially important for reusable or unstable formulations.
