 Lab tests

 Semi-field and field tests

For repellents, there are 2 levels of testing offered.

 1. Preliminary test – designed to provide provisional but useful development data on efficacy, using only 1 volunteer and a small number of mosquitoes. These data can be used for internal development use only and cannot be used as proof of efficacy for product registration or as evidence of full independent efficacy testing in defence of any official regulatory or legal inquiry.

2. Full test - designed to provide comprehensive efficacy data, using multiple volunteers and a high number of mosquitoes. These data can be used for internal development use, as proof of efficacy for product registration or as evidence of full independent efficacy testing in defence of any official regulatory or legal inquiry.
