Testing and Laboratory Services

Expert Insight

Effective antimicrobial solutions require testing to be successfully developed and marketed.

Our experts test for a wide range of microbial activity, including bacteria, fungi, yeast and algae, to ensure all possibilities are considered. Our solutions are then tested and adapted to be fully compatible with your product’s formulation.

For your end consumers our tests provide scientific proof of efficacy according to internationally recognised industry standards. SANITIZED AG is certified according to IS9001:2008 and has a strict compliance system.

In-Can Challenge Testing

Let us test how resistant your liquid paint formulation is to microbial growth. Stored paints can provide excellent conditions for microbial growth, making active protection crucial. We can test resistance against a cocktail of recognised microorganisms or isolate specific types from your facilities.

Dry Film Testing

Does your paint protect itself after application? Using laboratory-based agar plates or external exposure we can determine how resistance your applied plaint is to a range of microorganisms.

Plant Hygiene Germ Count Testing

Using samples from customer facilities we assess potential contamination sources within the paint manufacturing process.

Antibacterial Testing

How antibacterial is your treated article? Our testing reveals detailed insights into the degree of your product’s antimicrobial capabilities.
