One of the pre-requirements for the approval of a biocidal active substance or product is that the efficacy claimed against the relevant target organisms is adequately demonstrated. The variety of indications and application methods for biocides means that the appropriate efficacy studies must be specifically selected.
With our extensive experience in the fields of disinfectants, pesticides (insecticides, rodenticides, repellents) and protectants (wood preservatives, in-can preservatives and protectants for, among other things, masonry and textiles), we can develop the best testing strategy for each biocidal product in the laboratory and in the field.
Morever, we can recommend the best laboratories for testing efficacy, and we can take on the study monitoring. An aspect that will be increasingly important in future is the assessment of the risk of resistance development, particularly to rodenticides, including the demonstration of measures to reduce the risk.
