Clinical and Laboratory Tested
Surgicept® hand antiseptic (70% ethyl alcohol) has completed a series of clinical and laboratory tests in 2006 – 2011 conducted by BioScience Laboratories (Bozeman, MT) per the FDA’s Tentative Final Monograph testing criteria for surgical scrub and healthcare personal handwash (hand antiseptic) labeling for the healthcare professional market. Many of the results published in peer reviewed journals, such as The American Journal of Infection Control, and clinical posters presented at healthcare infection control and operating room nurses conferences.
Additional skin friendliness, irritation and sensitization studies were conducted, demonstrating that even after multiple applications there were no significant changes to skin hydration. See results on our Science page.
