AATCC 30 Test II

Agar Plate, Chaetomium globosum


Antifungal Activity, Assessment on Textile Materials: Mildew and Rot Resistance of Textile Materials


This test evaluates rot resistance of cellulose-containing textile materials that will not come in contact with soil.


  • Samples are placed onto mineral salts agar and inoculated with test organism Chaetomium globosum.


  • After incubation, samples are evaluated for strength loss and/or visual assessment evaluated for microscopic and macroscopic growth and a zone of inhibition.


  • MicroStar Lab does not perform breaking strength testing. Fabrics requiring breakage strength testing are sent to an outside laboratory.
