The flask is placed onto a wrist-action shaker and shaken for a desired exposure time, typically 1 hour. It is for this reason that the use of the term leaching throughout this document is limited to only the testing conditions described herein.
Maria Curry ext Wrist Action Shaker. The ASTM E Standard Test Method is used to evaluate the antimicrobial activity of substrate-bound, non-leaching, antimicrobial-treated samples under dynamic contact conditions. We use this information to improve and customize your browsing experience and for analytics and metrics about our visitors — both on this website and other media.
The presence of a leaching antimicrobial is determined post-test. The test determines the antimicrobial activity of a treated specimen by shaking samples of surface-bound materials in a concentrated bacterial suspension for a one hour contact time. Microbial concentrations ast, the treated and untreated samples are usually determined at 0, 1 or 24 hours contact time. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
One-hour contact time in f2149 buffer solution allows for metabolic stasis in the population. In this method, treated test samples are placed in a laboratory flask containing a dilute suspension of test organism, commonly Escherichia coli. The resulting plates are incubated, the number of survivors is enumerated and a percent reduction is determined for the test flask as compared to the untreated control suspension.
The number of viable organisms from the suspension is determined and the percent reduction is calculated by comparing retrievals from appropriate controls.
The susceptibility of the species to particular biocides could be altered depending on its life stage cycle.

This test method ensures good contact between the bacteria and the treated fiber, fabric, or other substrate, by constant agitation xstm the test specimen in a challenge suspension during the test period. Summary of Test Method: All the samples are shaken in dynamic shake flasks in a wrist action shaker to ensure good contact between the bacteria and the treated fibre, fabric, or other substrate by constant agitation of the test specimen in a bacterial suspension during the test period.
This test method is designed to evaluate the resistance of specimens treated with a non-leaching antimicrobial agent to the growth of microbes under dynamic contact conditions. This test method is only intended to determine efficacy as described in 4. The test quantitatively evaluates the effectiveness of a sample treated with a non-leaching antimicrobial agent by shaking asfm an organism suspension.

Qstm antimicrobial activity is determined by comparing results from the test sample to controls run simultaneously.

Note 1 — Stresses may include laundry, wear and abrasion, radiation and steam sterilization, UV exposure, solvent manipulation, temperature susceptibility, or similar physical or chemical manipulation. This method is generally used to substantiate antimicrobial properties of treated specimens for non-public health related claims.
Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the 2e149. Presence of residual antimicrobial activity indicates the presence of a leaching type aetm antimicrobial agent. The antimicrobial activity of a substrate-bound, non-leaching antimicrobial agent is dependent upon direct contact of microbes with the active chemical agent. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
This dynamic shake flash test was developed for routine quality control and screening test. Following exposure, a sample of the test organism suspension is removed quantitatively assayed for survivors.
