Significance and Use
This test method may be used to determine if a pre-saturated or impregnated towelette demonstrates antimicrobial effectiveness as a disinfectant on hard surfaces.
1.1 This practice is designed to evaluate the antimicrobial activity of pre-saturated or impregnated towelettes when used as a hard surface disinfectant.
1.2 It is the responsibility of the investigator to determine whether Good Laboratory Practices (GLP’s) are required and to follow them when appropriate.
1.3 This practice should be performed only by those trained in microbiological techniques.
1.4 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
1.5 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and to determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
