· JIS L1902
· ISO 20743
Scope: This Standard specifies quantitative test methods for evaluating the antibacterial activity of bacteria on antibacterial finished textile products including nonwovens. The standard is applicable to all textile products, including cloth, wadding, thread and material for clothing, home furnishing and miscellaneous goods regardless of the type of antimicrobial agent used.
Type of bacteria used:
Test samples are run in triplicate and are sterilized by high pressure steam in the autoclave.
JIS-L1902 and ISO 20743 are very similar to AATCC100.
Concentrations for all organisms and methods are done using automated equipment; as in Tempo Filler and Reader from BioMerieux and the Autoplater and Q-count from Spiral Biotech.
