DEMAND FOR HAND SANITIZER ANALYSIS
In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, the high demand for key hygiene supplies such as hand sanitizers has led to critical supply shortfalls. With many industries mobilizing to produce hand sanitizers for the first time, suppliers need quality control processes to ensure that the hand sanitizers produced are effective and safe.
The PerkinElmer Spectrum Two FT-IR Hand Sanitizer Analyzer follows guidance by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) for the compounding of certain alcohol-based hand sanitizers.
