Aetm antimicrobial agents, such as surface bonded materials, are not free to diffuse into their environment under normal conditions of use. The test quantitatively evaluates the effectiveness of a sample treated with a non-leaching antimicrobial agent by shaking in an e149 suspension. Log in Log out Edit. This test method ensures good contact between the bacteria and the treated fiber, fabric, or other substrate, by constant agitation of the test specimen in a challenge suspension during the test period.
In this test method, appropriately standardized concentration of freshly cultured microorganism is prepared. Test Package Request Form. The ASTM E test method is designed to evaluate the antimicrobial activity of non-leaching non-water soluble antimicrobials surfaces made of plastic, rubber, silicone and treated fabric material.
The test determines the antimicrobial activity of a treated specimen by shaking samples of surface-bound materials in a concentrated bacterial suspension for a one hour contact time.
The presence of a leaching antimicrobial is determined post-test. The susceptibility of the species to particular biocides could be altered depending on its life stage cycle. This method is generally used to substantiate antimicrobial properties of treated specimens for non-public health related claims. Shubhda Research Institute offers hands-on practical aastm programs at different levels addressing specific industries so as to hone your skills and techniques.

This dynamic shake flask test was developed for routine quality control and screening tests in order to overcome difficulties in using classical antimicrobial test methods to evaluate substrate-bound antimicrobials. Materials evaluated by this method may be comprised of e249, paper, powder or other solid materials.

It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine e249 applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as e219 of the standard.
ASTM E – Method Determining the Antimicrobial Activity
Experiment is set up by suspending the treated test material and untreated Blank Control material in separate sterile jars. Presence of residual antimicrobial activity indicates the presence of a leaching type of antimicrobial agent.
In this method, treated test samples are placed in a laboratory flask aastm a dilute suspension of test organism, commonly Escherichia coli.
This dynamic shake flash test was developed for routine quality control and screening test.
Summary of Test In this method, treated test samples are placed in a laboratory flask containing a dilute suspension of test organism, commonly Escherichia coli. To determine if a compound is immobilized in all conditions or during the end use of the product additional testing may be required. Antimicrobial Textiles For Fungi. This test method is designed to evaluate the antimicrobial activity of non-leaching, antimicrobial-treated specimens under dynamic contact conditions.

Note 1 — Stresses may include laundry, wear and abrasion, radiation and steam sterilization, UV exposure, solvent manipulation, temperature susceptibility, or similar physical or chemical manipulation. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
The resulting plates are incubated, the number of survivors is enumerated and a percent reduction is determined for the test flask as compared to the untreated control suspension. The ASTM E Standard Test Method is used to evaluate the antimicrobial activity of substrate-bound, non-leaching, antimicrobial-treated samples under dynamic contact conditions.
This test ensures good contact between bacteria and the treated fibre by constant agitation of the test specimen in a bacterial suspension during the test period 1hour.
ASTM E2149 Antimicrobial Activity
Bioassays pH Simulation studies. The reduction in bacterial population between the jar that contained the antimicrobial product to the jar which had the Blank Control untreated is determined. The flask is placed onto a wrist-action shaker and shaken for a desired exposure time, typically 1 hour. Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard. It is for this reason that the use of the term leaching throughout this document is limited to only the testing conditions described herein. The jars are agitated on a reciprocating shaker for proper and constant contact between the suspended microbial culture and the sample.
