The suspension used to prepare the suspension of bacteriophage use contains 3.
The method described in these standards, evaluates the effectiveness of materials used in the manufacture of protective garments against bloodborne pathogens using a surrogate virus suspended in a liquid, simulating the spontaneous contact conditions in a sanitary environment. Therefore, it is important to understand that this test method does not simulate all the physical stresses and pressures that might be exerted on protective clothing materials during actual use.
This test method is normally used to evaluate specimens from individual finished items of protective clothing and individual samples of materials that are candidates for items of protective clothing. The exposure is carried out for a specified time and under a selected pressure.
Inferences for protection from other pathogens must be assessed on a case-by-case basis. D Test Atm for Retention Characteristics of 0. D Test Method for Retention Characteristics of 0.
PPE-Info – Standard Details
This method asgm specifically defined for a penetration model of hepatitis B virus, hepatitis C virus and human immunodeficiency virus, and it is considered by extension that if it resists penetration by these viruses, it will also resist penetration by larger microorganisms like bacteria. This hydrostatic pressure has been documented to discriminate between protective clothing material performance and correlate with visual atm results that are obtained with a human factors validation 4.

Because of the length of time required to complete this method, it may not be suitable for use as a material or protective clothing quality control or quality assurance procedure. The type must be specified. The visual detection technique of this test method is supplemented with a biologically based assay capable of detecting virus under the specified test conditions.
This test method is normally used to evaluate specimens from individual finished items of protective clothing and individual samples of materials that are candidates for items of protective clothing.

Active view current version of standard. This test method is based on Test Method F for measuring resistance of chemical protective clothing materials to penetration by liquids.

The integrity of the protective barrier may also be compromised during f671 by such effects as flexing and abrasion 8. In one of the 60 mL compartments capacity the viral suspension of exposure is introduced, containing the bacteriophage Phi-X and in the opposite compartment the appearance of liquid or the presence of the virus is detected.

Health professionals who treat and care for patients can be exposed to biological fluids that can transmit diseases.
The manufacturer must indicate the possibility that the material under test can be altered by thermal treatment wet sterilizationso as not to do so in the event that it can be altered. This method is not effective for testing protective clothing materials that are internally coated by a thick coating that can absorb the liquid containing the test virus.
It is adtm responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
The values stated in each system must be used independently of the other, without combining values in any way. The resulting surface tension of the Phi-X Bacteriophage challenge suspension is approximately 0.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. This test method does not address the design, overall construction and components, or interfaces of garments or other factors which may affect the overall protection offered by the protective clothing.
The test includes a positive asmt consisting of a membrane with a pore slightly greater than the diameter of the bacteriophage 0. Some studies, however, suggest astk mechanical pressures exceeding kPa [50 psig] can occur during actual clinical use 56.
Additional tests should be considered that assess the impact of storage conditions and shelf life on disposable products and the impact of laundering and sterilization on reusable products. The values stated in each system must be used independently of the other, without combining values in any way.
