Antibacterial Activity Assessment of Textile Materials: Agar Plate Method
standard by American Association of Textile Chemists and Colorists, 2016
1. Purpose and Scope
1.1 The objective is to qualitatively detect bacteriostatic activity on products that are treated with antimicrobials and are capable of producting a zone of inhibitation. Some test samples do not have a flat surface, therefore, this method provides the advantage of testing odd shaped and non-flat surfaces by partially embedding them into molden agar prior to solidification. This provides the intimate contact required between the test sample and the seeded agar.
