General Irritation Testing

General Irritation Testing

The Skin Technology Center performs studies of the irritancy potential of topical antimicrobial products by means of multiple applications (15 or more) of a product beyond those necessary to demonstrate the antimicrobial efficacy of a healthcare personnel hand cleanser per the FDA Tentative Final Monograph [FR 43:4, 06 Jan 78, p. 1244].  

The additional applications are not preceded by applications of the challenge bacterial suspension.  The evaluations are performed visually and, in some studies, by means of bioinstumentation equipment and softwares.
