Germicidal Products Solutions
Verifying germicidal devices for efficacy, performance, and compliance with safety guidelines in the intended environment
Germicidal equipment incorporates light output in a special range that kills organisms and bacteria which lead to infectious disease. Germicidal products are used in healthcare facilities, air filtration systems, and other applications worldwide to help prevent the spread of pathogens. As part of our Protek end-to-end health, safety, and wellbeing assurance programs, Intertek services support manufacturers, users, and facilities to assess equipment safety and performance.
Germicidal products require testing and certification to ensure they comply with industry standards, can be legally sold and utilized in the intended environment, and are safe for use in the public domain.
Key areas of testing and verification:
- Ultraviolet (UV and UV-A, UV-B, UV-C) spectrum testing
- Efficacy Testing for Anti-Viral, Anti-Bacterial, and Anti-Microbial properties
- Photobiological Testing
- Lighting Performance Testing
- Overall Product Performance Testing
- Emissions & Immunity Testing
- Safety Certification to Global Standards
Depending on how these products are used, the requirements and testing will be different. Intertek evaluates germicidal products used in air purification, room cleaners for disinfection or sterilization, robotics, appliances, water treatment, consumer technology, and either fixed or portable products.
Intertek’s global network of experts and laboratories work with manufacturers on customized compliance and quality assurance plans for germicidal products across a variety of applications. Contact us today to discuss your project.
