Agar Patch - Antimicrobial Persistence Test

Agar Patch - Antimicrobial Persistence Test

The FDA does not have a process in place for formal evaluation of results of such studies and has no recognized official method for demonstrating persistence, other than that integral to the TFM methodology for testing surgical scrub products. Nevertheless, persistence, the continuance of bactericidal or bacteristatic activity for some period of time after product use, is a very desirable attribute for antimicrobial products intended for use by healthcare personnel and by the general public. Our clients frequently wish to include this in their marketing literature, a claim of substantive persistence of activity. The testing methodology, per ASTM E 1882, uses the forearms of human subjects as the sties of product application. The difference in bacterial populations between the control place exposed to untreated skin and a test plate exposed to treated skin constitutes the result of testing.
