Virucidal-Efficacy Testing for Submission to Regulatory Agencies

Published Date: June 22, 2022

Virucidal-efficacy testing is a type of testing that is used to determine the effect of disinfectants or antiseptic products on viruses. Antiviral testing describes methodologies applied to study antiviral drugs. Virucidal products are aimed at reducing or eliminating viruses from inanimate surfaces (disinfectants, antimicrobial coated surfaces) and human skin (antiseptics). Antiviral drugs target viral diseases of humans or animals.

This webinar provides a general overview of methodologies for virucidal-efficacy testing that are recognized by different regulatory agencies and used for virucidal label claims. The webinar will include details on critical testing requirements and acceptance criteria of current standardized and modified methodologies applied by the Virology Laboratory at Nelson Laboratories Bozeman.
