|Publication Date:||12 February 1980|
|ICS Code (Microbiology of water):||07.100.20|
1.1 This test method covers a procedure to test membrane filters for their ability to retain bacteria whose diameter is equal to or slightly larger than the 0.2-μm pore size of the membrane filter.
1.2 The procedures described are for the use of user laboratories as differentiated from manufacturers' laboratories.
1.3 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.
