Standard Test Method for Applying Aerosolized Bacillus Spores as Dry Inocula to Inanimate Surfaces
|Publication Date:||1 October 2013|
|ICS Code (Microbiology in general):||07.100.01|
This test method is designed to uniformly apply fluidized spores to surfaces as an aerosol under defined conditions.
This test method is specific to B. anthracis Delta (Δ)Sterne (BAΔS), but could be adapted for work with other types of Bacillus species.
This test method is suitable for working with any type of environmental surface.
This test method should be performed only by those trained in aerobiology, microbiology, or a combination thereof.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
