DuPont manufactures biosecurity products that help reduce human exposure to, and the spread of, viruses or bacteria that cause disease.
These products, which include disinfectant cleaners, antiseptic sprays and protective apparel, have been chosen by medical and industrial hygiene specialists for their effectiveness and ease-of-use in helping to reduce the risk of viral spread among emergency workers, employees and others who may be exposed to pathogens. They are the same products used by DuPont as part of an overall safety and general preparedness program for human influenza. Our protective apparel and fabrics have been safeguarding people from chemical and biological hazards for more than 20 years.
