ANTIBACTERIAL PROFICIENCY TRIAL RESULTS SUPPORT ISO/IEC 17025 CAPABILITY FOR AATCC 147 AND AATCC 100

Vartest has successfully completed participation in AATCC Proficiency Trials in support of ongoing ISO/IEC 17025 Accreditation for AATCC Test Methods 147 and 100. Additionally elemental analysis via wet chemistry/spectroscopy and energy dispersive xray are available in order to measure the presence and establish the location of elements such as silver which are associated with a particular anti bacterial finish.

Both leaching and nonleaching finishes can be assessed.

Biosafety Level 2 Testing At Vartest

 

Antibacterial testing is often one component of a battery of tests that Vartest performs to fully characterize a textile product. Both leaching and non leaching finishes can be assessed and Vartest has full capability to analyse the substrate to which an antibacterial finish has been applied.
