SPF (UVB) and UVA label claims are a critical component of sunscreen and other consumer products.

Microbiology is broken down into two main categories, classical and antimicrobial. Preservative efficacy testing is the main classical test performed to ensure that the product has enough preservative to protect it during the life of the product while in the consumer’s hands. Antimicrobial claims are a set of FDA monograph requirements used to support categories from surgical scrubs through antimicrobial hand washes and are customised to meet the requirements for each individual product tested.
