General Technical Considerations
Determining Lossnay Core Resistance to Bacterial Cross-
Contamination and Molds
To verify that there is no bacterial cross-contamination from the outlet air to the inlet air of the Lossnay Core.

(3) Test Period
April 26, 1999 - May 28, 1999
(4) Test Method
The test bacteria suspension is sprayed in the outlet duct at a pressure of 1.5 kg/cm
dominant particle size is 0.3 - 0.5 µm. The air sampling tubes are installed at the center of Locations A, B, C, D
(see diagram below), in the Lossnay inlet/outlet ducts so that the openings are directly against the air flow, and
then connected to the impingers outside the ducts. The impingers are filled with 100 mL physiological salt solution.
The airborne bacteria in the duct air are sampled at the rate of 10L air/minute for three minutes.
(5) Test Bacteria
The bacteria used in this test are as followed;
Bacillus subtilis: IFO 3134
Pseudomonas diminuta: IFO 14213 (JIS K 3835: Method of testing bacteria trapping capability of precision
filtration film elements and modules; applicable to precision filtration film, etc. applied to air or liquid.)
(6) Test Result
The result of the test with Bacillus subtilis is shown in Table 1.
The result of the test with Pseudomonas diminuta is shown in Table 2.
