AATCC 30 Pt 3 – Antifungal Fabric Test
AATCC 30 part 3 is an antifungal test for fabrics and textiles.
This method is an antimicrobial surface test that introduces a material to the common fungi Aspergillus niger. Alternate microorganisms can be used with this test by request.
Two versions of this method can be performed:
- The 7-day version with glucose provides quicker screens and is commonly requested for non-cellulosic materials
- The 14-day version without glucose provides more details about a product’s antimicrobial efficacy and is commonly requested for cellulosic materials
For a more stringent test, our laboratory recommends the 28-day ASTM G21 antifungal test. Plastics and polymeric materials generally use ASTM G21 instead of AATCC 30 part 3.
When choosing the appropriate method for testing, it is important to communicate with your product test laboratory; knowing what requirements need to be met and how to approach a project can be discussed and defined with our commercial and technical teams at Situ Biosciences to ensure a smooth testing process.
