Biolab biological assays are performed mainly within two areas: toxicology and microbiology. The tests are performed in accordance with official methods, EU. Ph., USP Ph., OECD Guideline, UNE EN-ISO, and specific methodologies for R&D. The laboratory offers orientation to manufacturers and importers in accordance with current regulations advice. As well as technical advice regarding the minimum tests to be performed to ensure the quality and safety of its products, in accordance with the regulations in force.

Pharmaceutical and Cell Microbiology

Qualitative and quantitative studies of microbiological loads of products. Preservative efficacy of disinfectants, etc.

Water Microbiology

Microbiological quality of purified water, highly purified water and bottled drinking water, wastewater, swimming pools, etc. Identification of contaminants.

Microbiology for Sanitary Products

Bioburden determination, sterility testing, parametric release, validation of sterilisation processes.

Microbiology for Cosmetics

Rating microbial loads, preservative efficacy (Test of Challenger), determination of specific microorganisms.


Evaluation of the toxicity/safety of pharmaceuticals, veterinary, cosmetics, chemicals, biocides, etc… for different inoculation routes: oral, dermal, inhalation, etc.

Alternative Methods

Alternative methods to the use of animals for the “in vitro” determination of irritation and toxicity studies for cosmetics and chemicals.


Tests necessary to ensure the biocompatibility of medical devices that come into contact with blood or tissues according to the UNE-EN ISO 10993.

Microbiology for Disinfectants and Antiseptics

Determination of fungicidal and bactericidal activity. With and without interfering substances. In use (UNE, ISO, AFNOR)


Assessment of pathologies or toxicities in different tissues.
