ASTM D7907 – Standard Test Methods for Determination of Bactericidal Efficacy on the Surface of Medical Examination Gloves

Test Conditions

The below table outlines the minimum requirements for the ASTM D7907 test:


Test Conditions

The standard refers to the parameters to be observed when determining the bactericidal efficacy on the surface of medical examination of gloves. This includes the test microorganism, contact time and interfering substance.

  • Test microorganism refers to the mandatory list of microbes that must be used in the test to determine the antimicrobial activity of the product. The mandatory microorganisms are assumed to represent all microbes in its group.
  • Contact time refers to the minimum duration a product must remain in contact with the microbes for the product to be effective.
  • Interfering substance refers to substance used in the test to simulate the possible contaminants that co-occur with microbes in the actual environment
