TECAM Laboratories provide chemical analyses and biological tests that allow the evaluation of various types of products named sanitizing, defined by ANVISA as those intended for household cleaning, disinfection or fumigation. Among the categories of sanitizers are: general cleaning products (soaps, detergents, bleaches, waxes and wax removers), products with antimicrobial action (disinfectants and sterilization) and household insecticides, rodenticides, amateur gardening products and repellents used to kill, control or repel unwanted vectors. Tests are performed to assess the possible risks associated with their use. Products with specific characteristics (more acidic or alkaline, antimicrobials and household insecticides) are submitted to a more careful evaluation by regulatory agencies especially regarding efficacy and toxicological properties. TECAM has a solid quality system recognized by INMETRO, ANVISA and others that allows testing of efficacy of disinfectants and toxicological properties under ISO 17025 and BPL.
