Hand hygiene product testing with volunteers

Volunteer Registration

Make quick cash by volunteering in simple and fun hand hygiene product testing sessions.

We are constantly conducting tests at Viroxy to determine the effectiveness of hand wash, handrub and surgical hand disinfectants. These products are required to be tested on real people to determine the efficacy, quality and effects of using the product. Each volunteer who participates in and completes assigned tests can earn up to RM120.
