Hand Sanitizer Testing

We are regularly screens and tests hand sanitizer formulations. The testing requirements for hand sanitizers are complicated and have not yet been finalized by the agency. We test hand sanitizer testing requirements.


Microorganisms Used For Hand Sanitizer Testing- The Tentative Final Monograph (TFM) specifies 23 species of bacteria and 1 species of fungus for use in hand sanitizer testing. In most cases, it is recommended that customers test both the "official" strain of the test microbe as well as a recent clinical isolate. However, due to the tentative nature of the monograph, opportunities may exist to trim down the testing scheme, so long as it remains scientifically defensible.
