Event description
This hands-on lab experience explores an essential commodity in our current world, hand sanitizer, through a presentation and demonstration.

About this event

Good hand hygiene is essential to prevent the spread of microorganisms. In the weeks before the COVID-19 lockdown, New Zealand experienced a scarcity of hand sanitiser. Associate Professor Shyamal Das and his students at the University of Otago's School of Pharmacy prepared the World Health Organization’s recommended hand sanitiser to serve the local community.

Prof Das and his team will give a presentation followed by a demonstration and hands-on activity to teach about hand sanitiser, an essential commodity to prevent COVID-19. Participants will learn the science behind hand sanitisation, understand safety issues related to hand sanitiser, observe the preparation of alcohol-based hand sanitiser in the laboratory, and learn how to detect a substandard alcohol-based hand sanitiser.

Children under the age of 14 must be accompanied by an adult. Due to very limited space in the lab, tickets are required for all attendees.

This event is part of the 2021 New Zealand International Science Festival. For the full event schedule, visit scifest.org.nz
