PPE-Info – Standard Details

Many factors can effect the wetting and penetration characteristics of body fluids, such as: These diseases can be caused by a wide variety of microorganisms and can pose a significant risk to health and life.

A retaining screen is used to support the specimen.

Examples of body protection include laboratory coats, coveralls, vests, jackets, aprons, surgical gowns and full body suits Medical protective clothing. Some studies, however, suggest that mechanical pressures exceeding kPa [50 psig] can occur during actual clinical use 56. Inferences about protection from other pathogens must be assessed on a case-by-case basis.

Prewetting agents, such as alcohol, and contaminating agents, such as perspiration, may also compromise the integrity of the protective barrier. The integrity of the protective barrier may also be compromised during use by such effects as flexing and abrasion 8.

D Test Method for Retention Characteristics of 0. Additional tests should be considered that assess the impact of storage conditions and shelf life on disposable products and the impact of laundering and sterilization asm reusable products. This test method does not address the design, overall construction and components, or interfaces of garments or other factors which may affect the overall protection offered by the protective clothing.

In one of the 60 mL compartments capacity the viral suspension of exposure is introduced, containing the bacteriophage Phi-X and in the opposite compartment the appearance of liquid or the presence of the virus is detected. Please see the full standard for complete details. The exposure is carried out for a specified time and under a selected pressure. The possible alterations of the protective material due to physical, chemical or thermal effects should be taken into account, since in this case they would negatively influence the behavior of the material, so that in case it can occur, the tests should be carried out before exposures to such material, physical, chemical or thermal conditions that may deteriorate it.

These protective garments can be, for example, gloves, aprons, masks, hoods, or boots, among others.

Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. This test method is normally used to evaluate specimens from individual finished items of protective clothing and individual samples of materials that are candidates for items of protective clothing. Ecotoxicology – Test with algae, Daphnia magnaCrustaceans Palaemon spp. Any visual or virological evidence of penetration will indicate the inability of the material to resist penetration.

Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. Inferences for protection from other pathogens must be assessed on a case-by-case basis.

Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.

The type must be specified. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. Test not accredited in our laboratory. It is asttm responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

This test method is based on Test Method F for measuring resistance of chemical protective clothing materials to penetration by liquids. To protect themselves from infectious agents transmitted by blood, health personnel should wear protective clothing made of materials that prevent microbes or viruses from passing through.

To help simulate the wetting characteristics of blood and body fluids, the surface tension of the Phi-X Bacteriophage challenge suspension is adjusted to approximate the lower end of this surface tension range.

The test is carried out observing the penetration of liquid without pressure for 5 minutes, followed by 1 minute at the indicated pressure 1. This hydrostatic pressure has been documented to discriminate between protective clothing material performance and correlate with visual penetration results that are obtained with a human factors validation 4.

The values stated in each system must be used independently of the other, without combining values in any way. The method described in these standards, evaluates the effectiveness of materials used in the manufacture of protective garments against bloodborne pathogens using a surrogate virus suspended in a liquid, simulating the spontaneous contact conditions in a sanitary environment.

November 20, Content source: November 20, Page last updated: This test method is normally used to evaluate specimens from individual finished items of protective clothing and individual samples of materials that are candidates for items of protective clothing. Health professionals who treat and care for patients can be exposed to biological fluids that can transmit diseases. If these conditions are of concern, the performance of protective clothing materials should be evaluated for Phi-X Bacteriophage penetration following an appropriate preconditioning technique representative of the expected conditions of use.

The pieces of the evaluated materials are recommended to have about 75 mm on each side, of which a 57 mm diameter circle is exposed. This method is not effective for testing protective clothing materials that are internally coated by a thick coating that can absorb the liquid containing the test virus. A definitive procedure that produces a test result: This site uses cookies and similar technologies. The test is performed in a chamber of two compartments, separated by the material evaluated.

The values stated in each system must be used independently of the other, without combining values in any way. Clothing for protection against contact with blood and body fluids — Determination of resistance of protective clothing materials to penetration by blood-borne pathogens – Test method using Phi-X bacteriophage.

This includes bullet-proof clothing, general protective clothing and full body ensembles that protect from cuts, radiation, temperature extremes, hot splashes from molten metals and other hot liquids, potential impacts from tools, machinery and materials and hazardous chemicals.
