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.
It has been developed for routine quality control and screening tests and is used to evaluate substrate bound antimicrobials.
Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. It is for this reason that the use of the term leaching throughout this document is limited to only the testing conditions described herein. This test method is designed to evaluate the antimicrobial activity of non-leaching, antimicrobial-treated specimens under dynamic contact conditions.

The resulting plates are incubated, the number of survivors is enumerated and a percent reduction is determined aztm the test flask as compared to the untreated control suspension. This website stores cookies on your computer. Organisms typically used in this method: Microbial concentrations in the treated and untreated samples are usually determined at 0, 1 or 24 hours contact time.
In this ast, treated test samples are placed in a laboratory flask containing a dilute suspension of test organism, commonly Escherichia coli.

Historical Asrm s – view previous versions of standard. These cookies collect information about how you interact with our website and allow us to remember you. 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.
The number of viable organisms from the suspension is determined and the percent reduction is calculated by comparing d2149 from appropriate controls. This dynamic shake flask test was developed for routine quality control and screening tests in order to overcome difficulties in using classical antimicrobial test methods to evaluate substrate-bound antimicrobials. The ASTM E Standard Test Method is used aatm evaluate the antimicrobial activity of substrate-bound, non-leaching, antimicrobial-treated samples under dynamic contact conditions.
Materials evaluated by this method may be comprised of fabric, paper, powder or other solid materials. This e2194 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. One-hour contact time in a buffer solution allows for metabolic stasis in the population.
The flask is placed onto a wrist-action shaker and shaken for a desired exposure time, typically 1 hour. Summary of Test Method: The antimicrobial e22149 of a substrate-bound, non-leaching antimicrobial agent is dependent upon direct contact of microbes with the active chemical agent. Presence of residual antimicrobial activity indicates the presence of a leaching type of antimicrobial agent. This dynamic shake flask test was developed for routine quality control and screening tests in order to overcome difficulties in using classical antimicrobial test methods to evaluate substrate-bound antimicrobials.

The test quantitatively evaluates the effectiveness of a sample treated with a non-leaching antimicrobial agent by shaking in an organism suspension. Immobilized antimicrobial agents, such as surface bonded materials, are not free to diffuse into their environment under normal conditions of use. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
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.
ASTM E2149 Antimicrobial Activity
No regulated reduction limits currently exist for general antimicrobial claims made using this method. This test ensures good contact between bacteria and the treated fibre by constant agitation of the test specimen in a bacterial suspension during the test period 1hour.
This test method standardizes both the growth conditions of the challenge species and substrate contact times to reduce the variability associated with growth phase of the microorganism. This test method atsm only intended to determine efficacy as described in 4. These difficulties include ensuring contact of inoculum to treated surface as in AATCCflexibility of retrieval at different contact times, use w2149 inappropriately applied static conditions as in AATCCsensitivity, and reproducibility.
