For Microbiological Testing

Regulatory requirements for medical devices (including disinfectants and antiseptics) as established by the Medical Devices Directive (western market) make it imperative for all such devices to be manufactured through safe and verifiable processes that comply with health standards and environmental mandates. Unless a product follows the directive completely, it cannot be introduced into the market.

We at ImmunitasBio provide manufacturers with affordable microbiological testing towards this end. We encourage you to contact us so we can provide you with the best fit for your product claims:
