Dust Mites Love Fungi As a microbial enthusiast, the interaction between humans and our unseen environment is fascinating. As part of our profession we are regularly challenged with issues related to the generic categories of microorganisms such as bacteria and fungi. But on occasion other classes of organisms such as small insects become important. […]
Certification from Aegis for Antimicrobial Textile Testing In compliance with the stringent quality control standards and testing protocols, Situ Biosciences is pleased to announce that we have been certified by Aegis as an independent laboratory for testing of textile products treated with Microbe Shield technology.
Formaldehyde is the most basic form of aldehyde representing the class of reactive antimicrobials. Situ Biosciences – Microbial Test Experts Did you know? Formaldehyde and aldehydes can be volatile at room temperature leading to the odor commonly associated with preservation of tissue or tissue samples such as in laboratories, hospitals, and mortuaries.
Microbial ID by Genetic and Phenotype Analysis What is microbial genetic identification?
Microbial Product Testing 1.0 If you’re new to microbial testing, it can be confusing as to which test(s) are needed, necessary, or required. “Which test do I need?” – Is a seemingly simple question, but the reality is that the requirements for a particular product can be complex.
A Guide to Microbial Testing: Microbial Control vs Microbial Elimination For Additional Guidance: First Steps to Microbial Product Testing In antimicrobial systems or microbiology testing, confusion arises when a particular system is being evaluated since the acceptable concentration of microorganisms for any particular process can differ.
Antifungal Test Methods ASTM G 21, D 5590, and D 3273 Antifungal products are those designed to provide resistance to the growth or effects of fungi, including mold, mildew and other forms of fungi. The range of products that should be treated with an antifungal is extensive and can include the components of raw materials, […]
The Microbial Rule of 3…. The “Rule of Three” simply stated is – Does the system have Water, Temperature, and Carbon? If ‘yes’ then the product or system will be challenged by microorganisms.
or “Which antimicrobial is best?” …unfortunately it’s not so simple. Product manufacturers have a challenging task when it comes to selecting antimicrobials for their products. Very few manufacturers have access to either in-house microbiology or formulation experts, or contract laboratories that have both microbial facilities and sufficient expertise in their product requirements. Details matter. For […]
