The approved ASTM E2946-13 method as well as other approved methods are used to conduct these studies. Subjects contaminate all surfaces of the hands and fingers with E. coli incorporated into a medium or heavy organic soil (beef broth or hamburger, respectively). This results in a minimum baseline recovery population of ≥107 colony forming units (CFU)/hand. Test material effectiveness is measured by comparing the number of challenge bacteria recovered from contaminated hands after a single application of the test material to the number recovered from contaminated hands not exposed to the test material.
Some of BioScience Laboratories most inventive study design work has been directed at testing the effectiveness of antimicrobial processes for controlling the numerous human factors that contribute to incidence of food-borne diseases.
