ISO 16604

ISO 16604: 2004 describes a laboratory testing method for measuring the resistance of materials used in protective clothing from blood-borne pathogens. This test method uses a surrogate microbe under conditions of continuous fluid contact.

Benefits Of ISO 16604

  • This test method uses a surrogate microbe under conditions of continuous fluid contact.
  • Laboratory testing method for measuring the resistance of materials used in protective clothing from infection by blood-borne pathogens.
  • This method of testing involves a critical process of thinking. Due to the length of time required to complete this test method, it may not be suitable for use as a tool or process to protect the quality of the dressing or the verification process.
  • This test method does not always work in the test of protective material with thick, internal liners that easily absorb the challenging fluid.
