Bioburden testing is an effective tool for qualifying processes, identifying best practices establishing continuous process improvements. The analysis includes testing for TAMC, Total Yeast and Mold Counts (TYMC), and anaerobic spore forming bacteria such as Clostridium difficile (C. diff). Viable counts provide metrics on the textile provider’s ability to achieve and maintain a state of cleanliness in their products. Products sampled are cotton, polyester and blends, representative of the highest volume materials being processed.
