ISO 8573-7:2003 specifies a test method for distinguishing viable, colony-forming, microbiological organisms (e.g. yeast, bacteria, endotoxins) from other solid particles which may be present in compressed air. One of a series of standards aimed at harmonizing air contamination measurements, it provides a means of sampling, incubating and determining the number of microbiological particles. The test method is suitable for determining purity classes in accordance with ISO 8573-1, and is intended to be used in conjunction with ISO 8573-4 when there is need to identify solid particles that are also viable, colony-forming units.
