Title: ASTM E2149 - Antimicrobial Activity Test

ASTM E2149 Test Method
ASTM E2149 Test
  • The ASTM E2149 is utilized for 'Deciding the
    Antimicrobial Activity of Immobilized
    Antimicrobial Agents Under Dynamic Contact
    Conditions' is a delicate test, frequently used
    to quantify the antimicrobial movement of
    non-draining, sporadically molded or hydrophobic
  • ASTM E2149 is frequently alluded to as the "shake
    jar test" and is suggested for testing an
    antimicrobial added substance like fabric, paper,
    etc. ASTM E2149 is utilized for materials where
    the antimicrobial treatment is immobilized and
    doesn't relocate into the general climate.

What bacteria can be tested?

Organisms typically used in this method
Staphylococcus aureus (ATCC 6538P), Klebsiella
pneumoniae (ATCC 4352) and Escherichia coli (ATCC

Every one of the examples are shaken in unique
shake cups in a wrist activity shaker to
guarantee great contact between the microbes and
the treated fiber, texture, or other substrate by
consistent disturbance of the test example in a
bacterial suspension during the trial.
