Description / Abstract:

These test methods cover the determination of the nutrient-holding capacity and the toxic or nutritive effect on bacterial growth of organisms retained on a membrane filter, when the absorbent pad being tested is used as a nutrient reservoir and medium supply source for the retained bacteria.

The tests described are conducted on 47-mm diameter disks, although other size disks may be employed for bacterial culture techniques.
