Any proposed standards for Surgical Drapes & Gowns
Draft standards for Surgical Gowns and Drapes are under Wide Circulation. These standards are being made by BIS- Textile Committee- TXD-36, Headed by SITRA.
It has got just one test " Wet bacteria Penetration test" . -- nothing more.
1. The method looks ok.
2. My concern is for the finger pressure on the specimen, they have not defined any value for it.,
3. Secondly Passing standard in terms of % is not defined. see below is part of text.
"The results are expressed as a percentage (%) of penetration compared to the bacterial load
initially inoculated on the donor."
