AATCC 90, Antibacterial Activity Assessment of Textile Materials: Agar Plate Method

Scope: The objective is to qualitatively detect bacteriostatic activity on products that are treated with antimicrobials and are capable of producing a zone of inhibition.

Some samples do not have a flat surface, therefore, this method provides the advantage of testing odd shaped and non-flat surfaces by partially embedding then into molten agar prior to solidification. This provides the intimate contact required between the test sample and the seeded agar.

Test organisms:

  • Staphylococcus aureus, ATCC6538
  • Klebsiella pneumoniae, ATCC4352
  • any other suitable organism
