scope:

1.1 This test method is designed to measure the reduction of microbial flora on the skin. It is intended for determining both immediate and persistent microbial reductions, after single or repetitive treatments, or both. It may also be used to measure cumulative antimicrobial activity after repetitive treatments.

1.2 A knowledge of microbiological techniques is required for these procedures.
