The test is performed in a chamber of two compartments, separated by the material evaluated. D Test Method for Retention Characteristics of 0. If these conditions are of concern, the performance of protective clothing materials should be evaluated for Phi-X Bacteriophage penetration following an appropriate preconditioning technique representative of the expected conditions of use.
The suspension used to prepare the suspension of bacteriophage use contains 3. November 20, Content source: The possible alterations of the protective material due to physical, chemical or thermal effects should be taken into account, since in this case they would negatively influence the behavior of the material, so that in case it can occur, the tests should be carried out before exposures to such material, physical, chemical or thermal conditions that may deteriorate it.
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 test method does not address the design, overall construction and components, or interfaces of garments or other factors which may affect the overall protection offered by the protective clothing.
This method is specifically defined for a penetration model of hepatitis B virus, hepatitis C virus and human immunodeficiency virus, and it is considered by extension that if it resists penetration by these viruses, it will also resist penetration by larger microorganisms like bacteria.
The values stated in each system must be used independently of the other, without combining values in any way. Materials passing Test Method F should then be tested against bacteriophage penetration using this test method to verify performance.
Please see the full standard for complete details. Ecotoxicology – Test with algae, Daphnia magnaCrustaceans Palaemon spp. The exposure is carried out for a specified time and under a selected pressure. This is accomplished by adding surfactant to the Phi-X Bacteriophage nutrient broth. The test includes a positive control consisting of a membrane with a pore slightly greater than the diameter of the bacteriophage 0.
The method is evaluated by two procedures: This test method is used to f1761 the resistance of materials used in protective clothing to penetration by blood-borne pathogens using a surrogate microbe under conditions of continuous liquid contact. These protective garments astn be, for example, gloves, aprons, masks, hoods, or boots, among others.
November 20, Page last updated: The pressure used under normal conditions corresponds to Clinical Microbiology Rabies Laboratory authorized by the European Union HIV genotypic resistance to antiretrovirals Biocidal activities and toxicology with disinfectants 59 accredited tests Toxicology – Biological evaluation of medical devices; MPCA products 19 accredited tests Cosmetic Microbiology Laboratory of control authorized by AEMPS 8 accredited tests Neutralizing antibodies in human immunoglobulins 3 accredited tests News on viruses: This hydrostatic pressure has been documented to discriminate between protective clothing material performance and correlate with visual penetration results that are obtained with a human factors validation 4.
The surface tension range for blood and body fluids excluding saliva is approximately 0. These diseases can be caused by a wide variety of microorganisms and can pose a significant risk to health and life. D Test Method for Retention Characteristics of 0.
The values stated in each system must be used independently of the other, without combining values in any way. Clothing for protection against contact with blood and body fluids — Determination of resistance of protective clothing materials to penetration by blood-borne pathogens – Test method using Phi-X bacteriophage.
Glove directives and norms list
This includes bullet-proof clothing, general protective clothing and full body ensembles that protect from cuts, radiation, temperature extremes, hot splashes from molten metals and other hot liquids, potential impacts from tools, machinery and materials and hazardous chemicals.

This method is not effective for testing protective clothing materials that are internally coated by a thick coating that can absorb the liquid containing the test virus. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.
