Standard Test Method for Evaluation of Antibacterial Washes by Cup Scrub Technique (Withdrawn 2006)
|Publication Date:||1 January 1997|
|ICS Code (Surface active agents):||71.100.40|
1.1 This test method is designed to demonstrate the effectiveness of an antibacterial wash product in reducing the resident microbial flora or a marker organism (representing transients) when used as recommended. Microbial activity can be compared with either a bland soap control or to a baseline organism count. Microbial samples can be collected either manually or by the mechanical Thran spray gun sampler.
1.2 A knowledge of microbiological techniques is required for these procedures.
1.3 In this test method, metric units are used for all applications.
1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, 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.
1.5 It is the responsibility of the invesigator to determine if Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) and Good Clinical Practice (GLP) and Good Clinical Practice (GCP) is required.
