When developing new pesticide devices for the U.S. market, manufacturers need to verify their antimicrobial claims while ensuring public health and safety. But without clear guidelines in place, how do you know the right antimicrobial product testing to support device claims and meet regulatory requirements?

Exponent Chemical Regulation & Food Safety Senior Managing Scientist Diane Boesenberg will address pesticide device and regulatory challenges in her presentation at this year's Antimicrobial Workshop. Don't miss her talk (more details below) or the chance to connect with Exponent Chemical Regulation & Food Safety Senior Scientist Madeleine Bee, Ph.D.
