Liquid Antimicrobial Efficacy Tests

These are virology tests that are related specifically to antimicrobial liquid efficacy testing.

Re-Use Stress Testing and Evaluation of Disinfectants

Purpose of Test The U.S. FDA and Health Canada require that high-level disinfectants intended to be continuously reused in a clinical setting be evaluated for efficacy after the product has been subjected to simulated re-use procedures. The purpose of this method is to generate a product which has undergone simulated use and periodic bio-burden stressing.… Read More

Virucidal Efficacy of a Disinfectant for Use on Inanimate Environmental Surfaces For Hepatitis B Virus

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires an infectivity assay to be conducted to determine the virucidal efficacy of disinfectants used on hard, inanimate environmental surfaces. Presently, there are no reliable in vitro infectivity assays available for Hepatitis B virus. The EPA has approved the use of surrogate viruses to be used as a model… Read More
