How do you know if your cleaning regimes are effective against SARS-Cov-2? Our microbiologists have developed and
validated a test which can prove or compare the effectiveness of surface cleaning regimes.
The test can be applied in any space used by people or with high footfall and is safe for use even in food production and
food service areas.
To be confident that your regimes destroy the virus, and to provide absolute reassurance to your workforce, hospitality
guests, travellers, patients or customers the test is invaluable.
Cleaning service providers can demonstrate definitely the effectiveness of their services.
How does it work and is it safe?
We ‘infect’ your premises with our safe Covid19 surrogate, you clean, we test to ensure no surrogate remains active.
We apply our special Campden BRI expertise to your test:
Safe surrogate virus: Our SARS-CoV-2 ‘surrogate’ virus is classified at biosafety level
one (BSL-1) meaning it is totally safe to handle. Research shows this accurately replicates Covid19 response to treatments.
Test Expertise: Tests are designed specifically for your context, taking into account
factors such as airflow, people contact and temperature, to ensure we thoroughly challenge your cleaning regime.
Robust Scientific Approach: To accurately detect any residual active surrogate virus (our
test does not detect inactivated virus) to give you absolute confidence in the results.
You can find out more about how the test works by reading our blog - Does your cleaning kill the COVID-19 virus?
How long does it take? From test to results: 3 to 5 working days.
What will my results mean? The results show whether your cleaning regime is effective or
not against Coronavirus. If required, we will interpret and explain results and propose mitigation strategies.
