We help identify your product issues in order to prevent microbes causing odours, stains and material degradation.
WHAT IS ANTIMICROBIAL TESTING?
BioLabTests can undertake antimicrobial testing to measure the level of performance an antimicrobial, antibacterial or antifungal product exhibits.
WHO IS IT FOR?
If you have an antimicrobial, antibacterial or antifungal product, this service will be of interest to you. We can undertake antimicrobial testing of a range of product including polymers, paints, coatings and textiles.
WHAT DOES IT INVOLVE?
Our team of experienced microbiologists will take samples of your product and perform appropriate tests on those samples. Suitable antimicrobial testing methods are ISO 22196, ISO 20743, ASTM E2149 13a, ASTM 3031, ASTM G21, AATCC 147, JIS Z 2801, Kirby Bauer Test and MIC (Minimum Inhibitory Concentration). The client is provided with a straightforward, confidential report presenting the test results.
WHAT WILL IT ACHIEVE?
For antibacterial, antimicrobial or antifungal products, our service quantifies the ability of those products to eliminate bacteria and/or fungi. It is this type of information that guides marketing claims about a product’s performance and backs up existing claims for treated articles.
We used BioLabTests’ services for the first time to prove efficacy of our cleaning and sanitising agents through swab testing. The team were friendly, knowledgeable and professional. We were very pleased with the prompt, polite and efficient service we received.
