Disinfectant Efficacy Testing

Antiseptics and disinfectants are both designed to kill germs in our everyday lives, however, these two terms should not be used interchangeably. Disinfectants are designed to be used on non-living surfaces while antiseptics are designed to be used on living surfaces such as your hands. When it comes to regulations within the United States, both disinfectants and antiseptics couldn't be any more different. 

Disinfectants are regulated by the the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The EPA regulates disinfectants as pesticides under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act. 

Antiseptics, such as hand sanitizers, are treated as over-the-counter drugs by the FDA since they are intended to prevent illness.

We offer a variety of services including efficacy testing and testing of raw materials.
