ALS Life Sciences offers chemical analysis and biological assays that allow the evaluation of products called sanitizers, defined by ANVISA as those intended for sanitizing, disinfecting or home disinfection in public collective environments, in places of common use and in water treatment. Among the categories of sanitizers, we can highlight: general cleaning products (soaps, detergents, bleaches, waxes and removers), products with antimicrobial action (disinfectants and sterilizers) and disinfectants (insecticides, products for amateur gardening, rodenticides and repellents used to kill, control or repel unwanted vectors).
The analyses and tests are used in the development of products, quality control, efficacy and registration of products in the competent authorities to verify the possible risks associated with their use. The products that present specific characteristics (more acidic or alkaline, antimicrobial and disinfestants), go through a more careful evaluation, mainly regarding the efficacy and toxicological properties. We have a solid quality system recognized by CGCRE* (General Coordination of Accreditation of Inmetro) and ANVISA that allows us to perform tests for disinfectants, sterilizers and other sanitizers in ISO 17025 and GLP.
