The information and outline given below is only for presenting the gist of the method to sponsors intending to test their product and is purely for educational purpose.


The presence of an effective antimicrobial treatment on or in the glove that can rapidly reduce the number of viable bacteria transferred from a contaminated source (reservoir) to a vulnerable patient or naïve site under different exposure conditions.

This test is performed to determine the Bactericidal efficacy on surface of medical examination Gloves. This test enables assessment of bactericidal efficacy against a broad spectrum of bacteria and conditions, providing a means of efficacy comparisons for manufacturers, purchaser and users.

There are two ways of performing the test based on the nature of the organism suspension used in the test. :

Method A: Determination of antibacterial efficacy against challenge bacteria in St Saline or Phosphate buffered saline.

Method B: Determination of antibacterial efficacy against challenge bacteria in saline/ phosphate buffered saline with organic load..

Bacteria: S .aureus, E. faecalis, P. aeruginosa, K. pneumonia

Turn over time: 10 days.
