Standard Test Method for Determination of Antibacterial Activity on Ceramic Surfaces
|Publication Date:||15 October 2015|
This method is designed to quantitatively evaluate the antibacterial activity of glazed ceramic surfaces that have been specifically designed to contain an antibacterial treatment as part of the glaze. This test method is meant to compare the efficacy of one ceramic surface to another ceramic surface using the stated conditions and is not meant to be extrapolated to other conditions.
Knowledge of microbiological techniques is required for this test.
