Microbial Tests

SERVICE

Microbial Tests

<strong>01</strong> Determination of minimum inhibitorty concentrations
Determination of MIC using microdilution plates, used in nanoparticle suspensions and antibiotics. Available microorganisms: E. coli ATCC 25922, S. aureus ATCC 29213
<strong>02</strong> Determination of Minimum Bactericidal Concentration
Derived from the MIC determination, it facilitates the measurement of the concentration where the viability of the analyzed microorganism is less than 0.01%
<strong>03</strong> 03 Determination of Antibacterial Activity in plastic surfaces or films under ISO 22196: 2011
Effective for evaluating surfaces modified with conventional or nanometric antimicrobial agents, this technique reflects comparative results against a standard sample.
<strong>04</strong> Determination of Antibacterial Activity of powders and plastic materials through contact dynamics technique (CD)
Technique used in materials such as pellets, powders, films, fabrics and others; facilitates the determination of the decay curve of the analyzed microorganisms’ population.
<strong>05</strong> Determination of Antibacterial Activity through the disk diffusion test (Kirby Bauer technique
It allows to qualitatively determine the antimicrobial activity of materials in different presentations, it is possible to adapt this technique to evaluate pieces of different morphology. It is recommended as a rapid test as long as the antimicrobial agent diffuses in aqueous media.
<strong>06</strong> Specialized advisory service for the implementation of antimicrobial effect technique of conventional or nanotechnological agents
Implementation and costing of antimicrobial activity analysis in different conditions, for example, UV radiation, biocompatible materials, large surfaces, porous materials, among others.
