    Active Standard: D8070 - 21

    Developed by Subcommittee: D02.14 | Committee D02 | Contact Staff Manager

    Keywords

    aerobic microorganisms; antibodies; antigens; aviation; bacteria; biocontamination; biodeterioration; colony forming units; diesel; fuels; fungi; Hormoconis resinae; kerosene; lateral flow devices; metabolites; microbes; microbial contamination; microbial growth; microbiology; molds; water; yeasts;;

    Rationale

    The term culturable is defined in Test Method D8070 3.2 Definitions but does not appear elsewhere in the standard. After full review and discussion with technical contacts of the D02.14 Fuel Microbiology WG, it was determined that the inclusion of culturable in the Terminology section of D8070 is unnecessary.
