Dosimetry

Dosimetry involves the measurement and determination of the rate at which at product is applied to achieve a particular outcome.

We conduct laboratory and field studies of dose-response outcomes in terms of both physical coverage and efficacy (e.g., percent control of a target arthropod).

We also conduct pioneering human-subject studies of dosimetry to measure self-dosing behavior for topical insect repellents. The findings aid the design of delivery systems, and are critical to determining dosages to be used in efficacy studies required for repellent registration.
