ASTM E test method can determine the presence of antimicrobial activity in plastics or hydrophobic surfaces.

The method focuses primarily on assessing antibacterial activity; however, other microorganisms such as yeast and fungal conidia may be tested using this method. Copyright c nbsp; W. Exposure periods may be modified up to 96 h to address more resistant microorganisms.

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.
ASTM E2180 – Antimicrobial Test
Polymeric materials such as vinyl fabrics, shower curtains and various medical devices aztm usually treated with antimicrobial agents. 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 also help in determining the Comparisons between the numbers of survivors on preservative treated and control hydrophobic surfaces. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. Staphylococcus aureus ,Pseudomonas aeruginosa or Klebsiella pneumoniae.
To get the suspension of bacteria, asmt other microorganisms, to contact uniformly with the surface treated with antimicrobials, in this test the inoculum is placed in a mixture with agar, in order to decrease the surface tension forming a pseudomembrane that provides a more intimate contact with the evaluated surface. Do not use Google Chrome Contact. Eight to ten working days if commonly tested organisms are tested.
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 asm the treated surface. In addition, yeasts or fungal conidia can be used if the levuricidal or antifungal activity is to be evaluated.
This test method facilitates the testing of hydrophobic surfaces by utilizing cells held in an agar slurry matrix. 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.
If you not change browser settings, you agree to it.
asm 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. Ecotoxicology – Test with algae, Daphnia magnaCrustaceans Palaemon spp. ASTM E test method based on agar slurry inoculum facilitate good contact of microorganisms with antimicrobial treated hydrophobic surfaces.

This microbial inoculated agar slurry is then spreaded onto the test and untreated control material triplicate samples minimum. To evaluate aztm antibacterial activity, the solution of molten agar is inoculated with a standardized culture of Staphylococcus aureusPseudomonas aeruginosa or Klebsiella pneumoniae.

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.

These antimicrobial agents require contact with the microbial cell to exert its maximum activity. The adtm reduction in the surviving populations of challenge bacterial cells at 24 h versus those recovered from a non-treated control is determined.
