Residual Efficacy Testing : New EPA testing available

The Covid-19 pandemic changed many of the ways we understood public and personal safety, particularly the concept of antimicrobial efficacy. In response, the EPA has begun clarifying and establishing these pathways to simplify the testing, registration, and marketing of antimicrobial products. In October of 2022, the EPA issued guidance on adding residual efficacy claims to antimicrobial products. Click below to learn more or reach out to our expert team to schedule your study today.

Monkeypox Virus Efficacy Testing - Scheduling Now Available

on June 29th, 2022, the USDA approved the importation permit for our facility to receive the Monkeypox Virus for testing in our Biosafety Level 3 lab (BSL-3). As a result, we are now scheduling product efficacy testing against the Monkeypox virus, with testing to begin late July.

We are also scheduling Biosafety Level 2 (BSL-2) surrogate testing in accordance with the EPA’s list Q strain requirements. It is important to note that if you wish to claim Monkeypox Virus efficacy on your products label, you must test against that specific strain. Surrogate evaluations will not suffice.

We will be scheduling testing on a first-come first-served basis for all testing. If you are interested in a Monkeypox virus efficacy test, please reach out to our expert team by clicking below.

FDA Deferment On Alcohol Based Handrub Products To End Dec. 31

On October 12, 2021 the FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER) released a notification that it intends to withdraw the three guidance documents regarding temporary policies for production / preparation of Alcohol Based Handrub Products due to the observation that supply of hand sanitizers by traditional drug manufacturers now meets demand. The FDA has stated that these guidance documents are intended to be withdrawn on December 31, 2021. Manufacturers that entered the hand sanitizer market during the pandemic, and took advantage of deferred testing requirements, must meet the FDA regulatory guidelines if they wish to continue sales of these products past the deadline.
