Usually, people have their biocidal product tested against a virology standard to make a claim against either a certain virus or a generalised antiviral claim. The product type will determine which virology standard is most relevant, or for specialist products we can write bespoke methods. The product type may also limit the number of claims that can be made. One example of this is that with hand sanitisers, you can make antiviral claims with the correct test, but you may not be able to make specific claims against diseases as well, if classing the product as a biocide. Making claims against specific diseases that are meant for human disinfection can push the product into medical device territory rather than a biocidal, meaning that the product will fall under different regulations. For more information about making specific claims on hand sanitisers you can contact the MHRA who are the governing body for medical products.
