Subjects for general use

LEGAL REQUIREMENTS

The addition of certain substances, e.g. metals (copper, gold, silver, etc.) at appropriate concentrations may have biocidal or static effects on bacteria and fungi. The action consists in inhibiting the multiplication of microorganisms and their growth. Any product, material or object of general use, in order to be recognized as having antimicrobial properties, requires research confirming the declared antimicrobial activity.

WHY SHOULD WE DO TESTS?

Products with the addition of substances with antimicrobial properties are increasingly important industrial and utility. The antimicrobial activity of microbicide inhibiting substances can be used in various materials, e.g. nonwovens, plastics, ceramics and other common-use items, so that they can be used as additional biocide-promoting agents.

In connection with the production of materials and products with expected antimicrobial properties, there is a need to confirm the properties of such products through laboratory tests.

WHAT MAKES US DIFFRENT?

Mikrolab has extensive experience in conducting non-standard research – determining the biocidal performance of products. We carry out research work using microbiological methods included in Polish and European standards. We provide testing using certified test strains from well-known and tested collections (eg ATCC).

We offer our clients assistance in the selection of the research methodology, depending on the type of product being tested and the intended use.
