Show Complete Document History
The following bibliographic material is provided to assist you with your purchasing decision:
1.1 This test method is used for determining the performance of antimicrobial agents used in or on synthetic polymeric solids against staining by the actinomycete streptoverticillium reticulum. This organism has been chosen as an indicator organism, though other organisms have been known to cause undesirable staining in polymeric solids.
1.2 This test method is not suitable for evaluating dark-pigmented test samples.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, if any, associated with its 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.
