Virucidal activities: standard protocols
Functionalized textiles

Quantitative test according to ISO 18184 (Oct.2014)

The aim of this test was to determine the disinfectant activity of textiles. For that, a test suspension of viruses in a solution of interfering substances is inoculated onto a test textile. The logarithmic reduction is determined under mandatory conditions of the standard.
The disinfectant activity of the textile shall demonstrate at least a 2 decimal log (lg) reduction.
