Note 1 to entry: The kingdom includes the yeasts, moulds and smuts.
4 Sampling
4.1 Sampling for viral penetration testing
The test specimen shall he taken from the palm area. If the glove is longer than or equal to 400 mm and if the cuff is claimed to protect against micro-organism risks, additional test specimens shall be taken where the centre is 80 mm from the end of the cuff (see Figure 1). For further instructions, see Iso 16604:2004, Clause 7.
In the case of seams in the hand area, this area shall be tested.
4.2 Sampling for bacteria/fungi penetration testing
The sampling for bacteria/fungi penetration shall be according to EN 374-2:2014, Clause 5.
5 Performance requirement
5.1 General requirements
Protective gloves against microorganism risks shall comply with the requirements given in EN 420:2009, Clause 4, Clause 5 and Clause 7.
5.2 Penetration
Protective gloves against virus, bacteria and fungi shall not leak when tested according to EN 374-2:2014, 72 and 7.3.
5.3 Protection against viruses
Protective gloves against virus shall be tested according to ISO 16604 Procedure B and shall exhibit no detectable transfer (<1 PFtJ/ml) of the Phi-X 174 bacteriophage in the assay titre.
5.4 Requirements for different protection types of gloves The requirements are mentioned in the Table. 1.BS EN ISO 374-5 pdf free download.
