ASTM E 3160, Standard Test Method for Quantitative Evaluation of the Antibacterial Properties of Porous Antibacterial Treated Articles

Scope:

To determine the bactericidal or bacteriostatic properties of porous articles treated with an active biocidal agent (such as textiles or paper), samples are inoculated with a define suspension of microorganisms and then incubated. The changes of numbers of the bacterial population on the treated article are compared with an untreated article either over the designated incubation time. if an untreated control is not available the initial concentration of the treated article is compare to the concentration at the end of the incubation period.
