Antimicrobial Lab Testing

JIS Z 2801:2000 (Bacteria) and ASTM G21 (Fungus) are the scientific standard for antimicrobial material testing. Both tests consist of exposing an antimicrobial material and a control material (non-antimicrobial) to various types of bacteria and fungus. The bacteria and fungus levels are then compared to determine how much of each was killed and how much growth was inhibited. 

Per this lab testing, SafeSleeve's antimicrobial material -- found on our Anti-radiation, Antimicrobial Cell Phone Cases -- kills and blocks virtually ALL bacteria and fungus.

An excerpt of the reports can be found below and the full reports can be found here (Bacteria), and here (Fungus).


  • JIS Z 2801:2000 (Bacteria)
    • Conclusions/Observations: The purpose of this study was to determine the bactericidal efficacy of the antimicrobial phone cases materials against S. aureus and E. coli for both sides of the samples. The test material demonstrated a >2 log reduction of S. aureus and E. coli. In conclusion, the test material was observed to disinfect (kill) S. aureus and E. coli with a >99% reduction.
    • ASTM G21 (Fungus)
      • Conclusions/Observations: Test samples of phone cases covering material coupons from Safe Sleeve Cases were evaluated for their resistance to fungi. Sample Side-A (front) demonstrated a rating of 1 according to the chart associated with method ASTM G 21. This means that traces of growth (less than 10%) was detected. Sample Side-B (reverse) demonstrated a rating of 0 which means that no growth was detected.
