Antibacterial activity of semiconducting photocatalytic materials
A European company was interested in testing their newly developed ceramic for antimicrobial activity. Based on discussions with the client, ISO 27447 was the method of choice because they had incorporated photocatalytic materials. The ceramic was inoculated with bacteria, then exposed to different UV intensities. EMSL was able to show the product was effective at 0.01 mW/cm2, which is comparable to the intensity received during the daytime in a room at about 3 meters from the window.
