Alcohol companies turning their hand at producing hand sanitiser - but are they compliant?

Antimicrobial testing support - Mérieux NutriSciences Australia


The Coronavirus COVID19 has hit Australia hard and fast, with the most up-to-date advice centering around social distancing and strict sanitising as some of the most effective ways to curb the outbreak.

“Here at Mérieux NutriSciences Australia, we have been working with clients for decades to test their disinfectant and antimicrobial products for efficacy.  We pride ourselves on timely and accurate test results, utilising state of the art equipment and methods.” Glenn Sparke, managing director said earlier today.

“Our company mission has always been to protect consumers’ health by preventing health risks related to food and more generally to the use of everyday consumer products.  In these times of crisis, food & pharmaceutical products remain essentials and it is our duty to ensure their absolute safety and quality.    

We have been concerned to hear of the recent shortage of sanitising products, not only on the supermarket shelves, but also within business and hospital and health care settings.  Not only is this a short term concern now, but long term habits will be changed and formed, and sanitisation products will become an essential and integral item in all areas of society like they never have before.

Therefore, effective immediately, we have reviewed our scheduling to ensure that all requests that come through requiring testing of sanitation products will be prioritised to ensure fast results back to manufacturers. 

We want to do our part to support these manufacturers to meet demand, and we believe shifting our focus to prioritise the relevant tests is vital in streamlining the supply chain process.

I’m sure there will also be many companies moving into this area as a new product line of their business, and therefore we are here to support them to understand Australian regulations and what they need to comply with before selling products. ”

Glenn and his staff are committed to supporting the sanitation goods industry to ensure adequate and safe supply to Australia for the long term.
