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. Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard. Maria Curry ext Wrist Action Shaker.
The test quantitatively evaluates the effectiveness of a sample treated with a non-leaching antimicrobial agent by shaking in an organism suspension.
Shubhda Research Institute offers hands-on practical training programs at different levels addressing specific industries so as to hone your skills and techniques.

ASTM E – Microbe Investigations (MIS)
A sample requirement for 1 test piece varies from 0. The test determines the antimicrobial activity of a treated specimen by shaking samples of surface-bound materials in a concentrated bacterial suspension for a one hour contact time. In this method, treated test samples are placed in a laboratory flask containing a dilute suspension of test organism, commonly Escherichia coli. These cookies qstm information about how you interact with our website and allow us to remember you.
Following exposure, a sample of the test organism suspension is removed quantitatively assayed for survivors. This test method is only intended to determine efficacy as described in 4. It has been developed for routine quality control and screening tests and is used to evaluate substrate bound antimicrobials. Materials evaluated by this method may be comprised of fabric, paper, powder or other solid materials.
The jars are agitated on a reciprocating shaker for proper and constant contact between the suspended microbial culture and the sample. Active view current version of standard. ASTM E is one of the only ways to test an irregularly shaped antimicrobial object, such as a thread, powder, 3D molded plastic. The reduction in bacterial population between the jar that contained the antimicrobial product to the jar which had the Blank Control untreated is determined.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. For example, water soluble antimicrobials will be prone to removal from the test surface using the method described in Section 13 but insoluble compounds will not.

Interpretation of antimicrobial efficacy is product dependent and final decision lies with the client. Log in Log out Edit. Industries that we serve.
No regulated reduction limits currently exist for general antimicrobial claims made using this method. Disinfectants And Sanitizers Testing. This dynamic shake flash test was developed for routine quality control and screening test. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the e2194 of regulatory limitations prior to use. 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.
Experiment is set up by suspending the treated test material and untreated Blank Control material in separate sterile jars. We use this satm to improve and customize your browsing experience and for analytics and metrics about astj visitors — both on this website and other media.
It is for this reason that the use of the term leaching throughout this document is limited to only the testing conditions described herein. The result is represented as log reduction or percentage reduction. No other units of measurement are included in this standard. Surface antimicrobial activity is determined by comparing results from the test sample to controls run simultaneously.
The number of viable organisms from the suspension is determined and the percent reduction is calculated by comparing retrievals from appropriate controls. The antimicrobial activity of a substrate-bound, non-leaching antimicrobial agent is dependent upon direct contact of microbes with the active chemical agent.

ASTM E – Method Determining the Antimicrobial Activity
Bioassays pH Simulation studies. Presence of residual antimicrobial activity indicates the presence of a leaching type of antimicrobial agent.
The flask is placed onto a wrist-action shaker and shaken for a desired exposure time, typically 1 hour. One-hour contact time in a buffer solution allows for metabolic stasis in the population.
