Antiviral Testing

Antiviral tests are performed to ensure that antiviral agents used in product formulation are capable of killing targeted viruses.

With the number of pandemics in history and the most recent COVID-19 outbreak, there is a frequent and significant rise in public health concerns globally. As a result of this, consumers are showing great interest in using things which ensure safety from viral infections. Utility of antiviral products include a wide area of application like health care sectors, daily apparels, household clothing, hospitality industry, and much more. Therefore, testing is a critical step for  antiviral product development companies/manufacturers to go through to provide high quality products. 

Antiviral testing laboratories play a critical role in monitoring and assessment of products that claim to provide protection against viral pathogens.

At MIS, we have established highly- technically advanced labs for research and antiviral efficacy testing according to ASTM, EN, ISO, EN standards. Our array of antiviral testing services includes textiles efficacy testing, disinfectant efficacy testing, and plastics/coating efficacy testing.

We execute and perform antiviral testing services for following industries –

  • ISO 18184 – Determination of antiviral activity of textile products. This International Standard (ISO) specifies testing methods for the determination of the antiviral activity of the textile products against viruses.


  • JIS L 1922 – JIS L 1922 is used to assess the antiviral efficacy of textiles and other porous materials. Textile products to be tested with JIS L 1922 include woven and knitted fabrics, fibres, yarns, and braids.
  • ISO 21702 – Measurement of antiviral activity on plastics and other non-porous surfaces. This International Standard (ISO) proper methods for measuring antiviral activity on plastics and other non-porous surfaces of antiviral-treated products against viruses.
  • EN 14476 – EN 14476 test method is used to determine the activity of commercial formulations or active substances under the conditions in which they are used. This Method is used for the quantitative evaluation of the virucidal activity of an antiviral textile test that performs the measurement of viral antimicrobial activity for sanitizers and disinfectants.
  • EN 16777 – EN 16777 (phase 2, step 2) is a quantitative suspension test for the determination of virucidal activity of products intended for use in medical areas for disinfecting non-porous surfaces including surfaces of medical devices without mechanical action.
  • ASTM E1053 – ASTM E1053 is a surface test to determine virucidal activity of chemicals intended for the disinfection of inanimate and nonporous environmental surfaces. Products to be evaluated for virucidal efficacy using ASTM E1053 include liquid, aerosol, or trigger-spray microbicides.
  • EN 14675 – EN 14675 is a quantitative suspension test which  evaluates the virucidal activity of chemical disinfectants and antiseptics to be used in veterinary areas for disinfection.
  • EN 17111 – EN 17111 test is designed to check activity of virucidal products intended for instrument disinfection in medical areas. As phase 2 step 2 carrier test, EN 17111 stimulates real-life conditions to ensure whether or not disinfectant products are capable of inactivating the viruses.
  • EN 13610 – EN 13610 aims to evaluate the virucidal activity of chemical disinfectants against bacteriophages in food settings. To pass EN 13610 efficacy criteria, the test product must achieve at least 4 log reduction value in effectively eliminating bacteriophages.
  • ASTM E1838 – ASTM E1838 specifies a test method to evaluate the effectiveness of handwash and handrub formulations for inactivating and/or removing transient viruses from the hands. 

At MIS, we provide analytical support to companies focussed on development and innovation of products that prevent and control viral infections.We perform research and structure testing processes that meet product efficacy and compliance needs of client products.
