Fungus Test (MIL-STD-810-G)
Fungus test is carried out to determine whether fungal growth occurs on critically important military and civil equipment and materials under controlled conditions and to determine the extent of growth.
Fungal growth of functional materials can potentially alter the physical properties of the material and therefore cause function loss. Function loss of materials in critically important uses can in turn potentially result in serious loss of life and property. It is possible to determine the fungal growth capability and capacity of materials at critical design stage.
We are accredited according to ISO 17025 to carry out this test on aerial, ground, aquatic, space platforms and their subcomponents; electrical and electronic instruments and their mechanical parts; sensors; textiles and textile products; plastic and plastic products; packing materials; paper and paper products; cables; rubber; glass and glass products; paints, painted surfaces and conformity coatings; ceramics and ceramic products; wood and wood products; metals and metal products; petroleum products.

Fungus Resistance Test (RTCA/DO-160G)
Fungus resistance test is carried out to determine whether fungal growth occurs on civil aviation equipment under controlled conditions and to determine whether fungal growth affects to functionality of the equipment.
Equipment employed in civil aviation need to withstand various extreme conditions and to be used only after excessive testing. Fungal growth on materials used in aviation not only produce aesthetically unpleasant effects but also is hazardous for health in confined spaces of aeronautical vessels. More importantly fungal growth can cause functionality loss of materials and therefore serious loss of life and property.
We are accredited according to ISO 17025 to carry out this test on aviation equipment, carbon based natural materials and products, materials with film accumulation due to usage, metals and metal products, glass and glass products.
Determination of Fungus Resistance Test (ASTM G21)
This test is carried out in order to determine whether synthetic polymeric materials support fungal growth under controlled conditions and to determine the extent of growth.
Synthetic polymeric materials are employed in various sectors for a wide range of applications. Fungal growth on these materials with such a wide range of applications can cause various undesirable outcomes. Therefore, determination of fungal resistance of these materials plays an important role in functional material design.
We are accredited according to ISO 17025 to carry out this test on every kind of synthetic polymeric material.
Antimicrobial Activity Test (JIS Z-2801)
Antimicrobial activity test is carried out to determine the antimicrobial activity and efficacy of biomedical materials. Various materials, especially biomedical ones are required to display antimicrobial activity. With this test it is possible to determine and report whether such materials indeed display antimicrobial activity and to determine the efficacy of such activity. We are accredited according to ISO 17025 to carry out this test on plastics, metals and ceramics.
Testing of Fungal Growth on Military Cables (TS4348)
This test is carried out to determine whether fungal growth occurs on military cables under controlled conditions and to determine the extent of growth. Cables, present in every type of circuit design are tested for fungal growth by testing their resistance to high voltage at the end of the test.
CBRN Decontamination Materials and Equipment Test (NATO AEP-58 Vol. I Liquid Test and Panel Test)
TProducts and systems developed in order to decontaminate biological warfare agents are not critical in the hot zone but also in the warm and cold zones in order to minimize harm to individuals, by means of cleaning of any item having contacted biohazards. Therefore, it is crucial that decontamination materials and equipment are indeed capable of efficiently eliminating the biohazard by reducing the microbiological load.
In our laboratory we are capable of carrying two different tests under the given document, namely liquid test and panel test. In liquid test the decontamination efficacy of a given decontaminant in liquid or powder form is determined by treating it with a known amount of microorganism suspension and monitoring the reduction in the microbial amount. Likewise, the panel test is carried on in a similar manner, the only difference being the panel surface being the decontaminant.
MIL-T-18404 (NOrd) Tropical Environment Test
Tropical environment test is carried out to determine whether fungal growth occurs on torpedoes and torpedo equipment under controlled conditions.
Torpedoes and torpedo equipment are at a higher risk of fungal contamination and growth, which can eventually lead to critical function loss, due to their naval usage. In other words, torpedoes and related equipment are exposed to elevated levels of humidity, which is a requirement of fungal growth. Therefore, the torpedoes and related equipment need more frequent fungus testing.
We are capable of carrying out the fungus test given under the MIL-T-18404 (NOrd) Tropical Environment Test
