“Given the importance of the availability of sanitisers among all members of society during the current period to fight the outbreak of the new coronavirus, CTL produced a new hand sanitiser that meets the specifications stated in the latest policy for temporary compounding of certain alcohol-based hand sanitiser products during the public health emergency issued by the US Food and Drug Administration, which is based on World Health Organisation guidelines,’’ said Abdulla Hassan Al Muaini, Executive Director of CTL.
“The new product which contains 80 per cent alcohol is an antibacterial/antimicrobial hand sanitiser that is made by the national workforce of CTL. Hand sanitiser bottles tested for their safety and efficacy will be distributed for free to low-income families and workers in Abu Dhabi,” he added.
