ASTM WK43961

    Revision of E1326 - 13 Standard Guide for Evaluating Nonconventional Microbiological Tests Used for Enumerating Bacteria

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: E1326 - 13

    Developed by Subcommittee: E35.15 | Committee E35 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    Although E1326 was reapproved in 2013, the ballot received a number of relevant affirmative with comment votes. In particular, the concept of methods other than culture methods being designated as non-conventional may well anachronistic. Based on a discussion held during the October 2013 E.35.15 Subcommittee Meeting in Jacksonville Florida the Subcommittee agreed to commission a Task Force to review and revise E1326 to ensure that the Guide reflects current microbiological test method concepts.
