Does brand name truly matter when shopping for hand sanitizers?

Purell is the brand I automatically think of, but it seems that the drug store brand or other generic brands out there are cheaper. The ingredients seem to mostly be the same. And if I understand the concept correctly, it's mainly the alcohol in the sanitizer that kills the germs. So seriously, what is the difference between the brand name or generic? Is there a reason to trust a recognized name over a generic one? Does anyone have any preferences?
