Welcome to Microbiology Testing Services of Shubhda Research Institute –Simulation Studies information page.

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.


Fungal growth may cause changes in optical, mechanical, and electrical properties of a material. Carbon-rich organic materials do provide a food source to support fungal growth. Conversely, synthetic polymer materials generally do not contain enough of a food source and thus do not support fungal growth. However, carbon-rich constituents and contaminants in and on these synthetic materials can provide the needed food for fungi.

The primary objectives of the Fungus Resistance Testing TAPPI (sometimes referred to as Non-Nutrient Growth Testing) are to determine:

  1. if the materials comprising the product will support fungal growth;

  2. how rapidly fungus will grow on the material; and

  3. If the product can be stored effectively in a field environment.

This method is recommended for determining the resistance to fungal growth of paper, paperboard, fiberboard or related products.

The sheet is brought into contact with fungal species and then monitored to determine if the sheet can inhibit the growth of the species for a period of 21 days.

Fungal organisms : Chaetomium globosum, Aspergillus terrus, A. niger.

Turn around time: 30 days.
