Healthcare Personnel Handwash & Handrub

Healthcare Personnel Handwash & Handrub

BioScience Laboratories has been closely involved in the development and refinement of the Healthcare personnel handwash & Healthcare personnel handrub testing methods used to evaluate healthcare personnel handwash/handrub products.

The general concept of the test is to determine how effectively handwash and handrub products can eliminate transient, contaminative, bacteria from the hands. For this test Serratia marcescens or Escherichia coli, generally serves in the role of "transient, contaminative bacteria," and broth suspensions of the organisms are applied to the hands of the subjects, after which test product is applied. (Other organisms may be used as per sponsor’s request.)

An elaboration often appended to Healthcare Personnel Handwash studies is an irritation assessment. In these studies, the skin of the hands will be evaluated for dryness and erythema (redness) at the completion of multiple product applications (possibly over multiple days).
