Staphylococcus aureus ,Pseudomonas aeruginosa or Klebsiella pneumoniae. Eight to ten working days if commonly tested organisms are tested.
After the specified contact time 24 h commonly usedsurviving microorganisms are recovered via elution of the agar slurry inoculum from the test substrate into neutralizing broth.
Calculation of percent reduction of bacteria from treated versus untreated samples is made. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.
This test method, as written, is inappropriate to determine efficacy against biofilm cells, which are different both genetically and metabolically than planktonic cells used in this test. ASTM E test method based on agar slurry inoculum facilitate good contact of microorganisms with antimicrobial treated hydrophobic surfaces.
Therefore, it is great help in evaluating antimicrobial activity of hydrophobic antimicrobial treated surfaces. The method focuses primarily on assessing antibacterial activity; however, other microorganisms such as yeast and fungal ast may be tested using this method. This test method facilitates the testing of hydrophobic surfaces by utilizing cells held in an agar slurry matrix. ASTM E test also help in determining the Comparisons between the numbers of survivors on preservative treated and control e22180 surfaces.
Comparisons between the numbers of survivors on preservative-treated and control hydrophobic surfaces may also be made. To evaluate the antibacterial activity, the solution of molten agar is inoculated with a standardized culture e2810 Staphylococcus aureusPseudomonas aeruginosa or Klebsiella pneumoniae. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
Polymeric materials such as vinyl fabrics, shower curtains and various medical devices are usually treated with antimicrobial agents. The usual contact time is 24 hours, but can be modified according to the manufacturer’s requirements up to 96 hours to deal with more resistant microorganisms. ASTM E test method can determine the presence of antimicrobial activity in plastics or hydrophobic surfaces.
This method also makes it possible to evaluate the useful life or the duration of the activity of the incorporated antimicrobial agent by testing washed or unwashed samples over a period of time. The percent reduction in the surviving populations of challenge bacterial cells at 24 h versus those recovered from a non-treated control is determined.
Copyright c nbsp; W. Proper microbial contact to an antimicrobial surface is necessary to evaluate the antimicrobial activity. Serial dilutions are made, plated and incubated for 48 h at a specified temperature dependent upon the optimal temperature for test organism.
These antimicrobial agents require contact ee2180 the microbial cell to exert its maximum activity.

ASTM E Antimicrobial Testing Lab – Accugen Laboratories, Inc.
When bacterial inoculum is applied on the surface of plastics or other hydrophobic materials with incorporated preservatives, the surface tension of the polymer generally causes the microbial suspension of inoculum to separate from its surface, so that the microorganisms in the suspension may not contact the treated surface.

After the chosen contact time has elapsed, the microorganisms are eluted in a neutralizing solution and the percentage of recovery compared with the respective controls is calculated. Standard Test Method for determining the activity of incoporated antimicrobial agents in polymeric or hydrophobic materials.
ASTM E test method allows determination of quantitative differences in antimicrobial activity between untreated plastics or polymers and those with bound or incorporated low water-soluble antimicrobial agents. On hydrophobic surfaces, it is hard to spread the microorganisms.

In addition, yeasts or fungal conidia can be used if the levuricidal or antifungal activity is to be evaluated. To get the suspension of bacteria, or other microorganisms, to contact uniformly with the surface treated with antimicrobials, in this test the inoculum is placed in e1280 mixture with agar, in order to decrease the surface tension forming a pseudomembrane that provides a more intimate contact with the evaluated surface.

ASTM E test procedure also permits determination of shelf-life or long term stability of an antimicrobial treatment which may be achieved through testing both non-washed and washed samples over a time span.
