Test not accredited in our laboratory. 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.
Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. Because of the length of time required to complete this method, it may not be suitable for use as a material or protective clothing quality control or quality assurance procedure. The test is carried out observing the penetration of liquid without pressure for 5 minutes, followed by 1 minute at the indicated pressure 1. Additional tests should be considered that assess the impact of storage conditions and shelf life on disposable products f1761 the impact of laundering and sterilization on reusable products.
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.
Test Method A definitive procedure that produces a test result: 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. In one of the 60 mL compartments capacity the sstm suspension of exposure is introduced, containing the bacteriophage Phi-X and in the opposite compartment the appearance of liquid or the presence of the virus is detected.

The method is evaluated by two procedures: The type must be specified. Skip directly to search Skip directly to A to Z list Skip directly to navigation Skip directly to page options Skip directly to site content.
Please see the full standard for complete details. 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. These protective garments can be, for example, gloves, aprons, masks, hoods, or boots, among others. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.

The resulting surface tension of the Phi-X Bacteriophage challenge suspension is approximately 0.

The integrity of the protective barrier may also be compromised during use by such effects as flexing and abrasion 8. 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.
This test method is based on Test Method F for measuring resistance of chemical protective clothing materials to penetration by liquids. Examples of body protection include laboratory coats, coveralls, vests, jackets, aprons, surgical gowns and full body suits.
This is accomplished by adding surfactant to the Phi-X Bacteriophage nutrient broth. A definitive procedure that produces a test result: In case a non-sterile material is used, the test will include the corresponding controls to exclude the presence of the bacteriophage in the materials evaluated.
The surface tension range for blood and body fluids excluding saliva is approximately 0. Inferences about protection from other pathogens must be assessed on a case-by-case basis. Many factors can effect the wetting and penetration characteristics of body fluids, such as: The exposure is carried out for a specified time and under a selected axtm. November 20, Page last updated: A retaining screen is used to support the specimen.
The pieces of the evaluated materials are recommended to have about 75 mm on each side, of which a 57 mm diameter circle is exposed. Materials passing Test Method F should then be tested against bacteriophage penetration using this test method to verify atm.
Ecotoxicology – Test with algae, Daphnia magnaCrustaceans Aztm spp.
The suspension used to prepare the suspension of bacteriophage use contains 3. These diseases can be caused by a wide variety of microorganisms and can pose a significant risk to health and life. Trace Laboratories – Denver, CO, Any visual or virological evidence of penetration will indicate the inability of the material to resist awtm.
This test method is used to measure the resistance of materials used in protective clothing to penetration by blood-borne pathogens using a surrogate microbe under conditions of continuous liquid contact.
The pressure used under normal conditions corresponds to 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.
