Antibacterial Testing Laboratory
The Japanese Industrial Standard [JIS] L 1902 test has been developed to test the antimicrobial activity of various fabrics. The JIS L 1902 test method has been embraced as an International Standards Organization (ISO) method, ISO 20743, with a few minor changes.
The JIS Z 2801 test method has been developed to evaluate the ability of hard surfaces to prevent or kill the growth of microorganisms. This method has been accepted as an International Organization for Standardization (ISO) procedure, ISO 22196.
The AATCC 100 is a quantitative test method used to determine the antibacterial activity of a textile or porous material, such as paper filter media and tissues. This proves to be particularly useful in the sports, commercial, and medical fields.
The ASTM E2149 test method quantifies and evaluates the efficacy of a sample treated with a non-leaching antimicrobial agent through the shaking in of an organism suspension.
The EN 1276 is a quantitative suspension test for the evaluation of the bactericidal activity of chemical disinfectants and antiseptics. This is particularly useful across food, industrial, domestic, and institutional sectors.
