PPE Testing Services
Medical gowns and drapes – Test suite: ANSI/AAMI PB70 & ASTM F2407 Level I, II, and III
OIC offers a broad range of testing services for evaluating medical gowns and drapes synthetic blood penetration, water resistance, wet and dry bacterial penetration, and more.
Internationally recognized standards are followed meticulously to ensure accuracy of our results when evaluating your products. If a non-standard test is needed, our engineering team will develop and incorporate modifications to suit your specific product and data needs.
We pride ourselves on the ability to meet a customer’s specific needs with personalized service and rapid turn-around.
Dry Bacterial Penetration
Medical gowns are placed in contact with a bacterial culture under dry conditions to determine the degree of penetration through the material.
Wet Bacterial Penetration
Medical gowns placed in contact with a bacterial culture under wet conditions to determine the degree of penetration through the material.
Synthetic Blood Penetration (Gowns)
Medical gowns are challenged to resist penetration of synthetic blood disbursed at increasing velocities to simulate blood spatter.
Water Resistance: Impact Penetration Test
A flow of water is dropped onto a gown material sample from a specified height and blotting paper is used to determine if water has penetrated the sample.
Test Method for Water Resistance: Hydrostatic Pressure
Pressurized water pushing against a gown material sample for a specified period of time to determine if and when penetration occurs.
