|Publication Date:||21 July 2015|
|ICS Code (Textiles in general):||59.080.01|
This Standard specifies a test method for the quantitative determination of the antifungal activity by measuring the intensity of luminescence produced by an enzymatic reaction of adenosine triphosphate (hereafter referred to as "ATP"), and antifungal efficacy.
This Standard is applicable to various kinds of textile products, such as yarns, woven and nonwoven fabrics, clothing, bedclothes, home furnishings and other miscellaneous goods.
Based on the intended application and on the environment in which the textile product is to be used, the user can select the most suitable evaluation method from the following methods.
a) Absorption method An evaluation method in which spore suspension is inoculated directly onto the specimens.
b) Transfer method An evaluation method in which test fungi are placed on an agar plate and printed onto the specimens.
