Determination of Antiviral Activity of Textile Products
JIS L 1922 is used to assess the antiviral efficacy of textiles and other porous materials. Textile products to be tested with JIS L 1922 include woven and knitted fabrics, fibres, yarns, and braids.
As per antiviral analysis reports, viruses can survive on fabric materials and remain infectious for several days. Clothing contaminated with viruses acts as a reservoir of infection and poses a significant risk for transmission.
Antiviral textiles are the textiles that either inhibit the growth of infectious virus particles or completely eliminate them. JIS L 1922 test method helps to check the efficacy of such antiviral textile materials against a set of test viruses.
JIS L 1922 is an identical test method to ISO 18184 with some modifications.
At Microbe Investigations (MIS), we focus on rapid and reliable antimicrobial testing of your products.
We understand the customer’s testing requirements and design the right protocols for the antimicrobial evaluation of product samples. Our research experts keep a track of daily test activities and interpret and compare the test results to established specifications and control limits.
For antiviral textile finishes, we perform JIS L 1922 and ISO 18184 frequently in our testing facilities.

JIS L 1922 specifies the testing method for assessing the antiviral efficacy of textile materials.
JIS L 1922 testing method can be used for a variety of textile products including fibres, yarns, braids, woven, and knitted fabrics, etc.
JIS L 1922 test takes 3-4 days to complete.
At Microbe Investigations, we test for the JIS L 1922 using the following viral strains : SARS CoV-2, Beta coronavirus (OC43), Human coronavirus (229E), Influenza A Viruses (H1N1 and H3N2), Poliovirus, Adenovirus, Murine Norovirus, Vaccinia virus, Feline Calicivirus.
