D Test Method for Retention Characteristics of 0. In one of the 60 mL compartments capacity the viral suspension of exposure is introduced, containing the bacteriophage Phi-X and in the opposite compartment the appearance of liquid or the presence of the virus is detected. Some studies, however, suggest that mechanical pressures exceeding kPa aetm psig] can occur during actual clinical use 56. If these conditions are of concern, the performance of protective clothing materials should be evaluated for Phi-X Bacteriophage penetration following an appropriate preconditioning technique representative of the expected conditions of f171.

F16711 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. Please see the full standard for complete details. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.
A retaining screen is not used to support the specimen. The method described in these standards, evaluates the effectiveness of materials used in the manufacture of protective garments against bloodborne pathogens using a surrogate virus suspended in a liquid, simulating the spontaneous contact conditions in a sanitary environment. The visual detection technique f16771 this test method is supplemented with a biologically based assay capable of detecting virus under the specified test conditions.

Examples of body protection include laboratory coats, coveralls, vests, jackets, aprons, surgical gowns and full body suits. This method is not effective for f167 protective clothing materials that are internally coated by a thick coating that can absorb the liquid containing the test virus. Test Method F uses the same penetration test cell and technique, but exposes material specimens to synthetic blood with visual detection of liquid penetration.
November 20, Content source: To protect themselves from infectious agents transmitted by blood, health personnel should wear protective clothing made of materials that prevent microbes or viruses from passing through. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. Inferences about protection from other pathogens must be assessed on a case-by-case basis.
This method is specifically defined for a penetration model of hepatitis B virus, hepatitis C virus and human immunodeficiency virus, and it is considered by extension that if it resists penetration by these viruses, it will also resist penetration by larger microorganisms like bacteria. Ecotoxicology – Test with algae, Daphnia magna and fishes Environmental microbiology Plants microbiology Marine biotoxins toxins in fish and bivalve molluscs DSP, PSP, NSP, ciguatoxins Aquaculture infectious diseases Molecular diagnosis Fertilizers Microbiology Paternity tests in any species, including humans Identification of animal species and sex in meat or fish products.
The values stated in each system must be used independently of the other, without combining values in any way. Test not accredited in our laboratory. Materials passing Test Method F should then be tested against bacteriophage penetration using this test method to verify performance.
A definitive procedure that produces a test result: This test method does not address the design, overall construction and components, or interfaces of garments or other factors which may affect the overall protection offered by the protective clothing. The test is carried out observing the penetration of liquid without pressure for 5 minutes, followed by 1 minute at the indicated pressure 1.
Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. Any visual or virological evidence of penetration will indicate the inability of the material to resist penetration.
These diseases can be caused by a wide variety of microorganisms and can pose a significant risk to ashm and life. The pressure used under normal conditions corresponds to The surface tension range for blood and body fluids excluding saliva is approximately 0. The integrity of the protective barrier may also be compromised during use by such effects as flexing and abrasion 8.
The test is performed in a chamber of two compartments, separated by the material evaluated. The test includes a positive control consisting of a membrane with a pore slightly greater than the diameter of the bacteriophage 0. D Test Method for Retention Characteristics of 0.
