For the purpose of this study, a voltage probe, © 2009 Woodhead Publishing Limited Testing dressings and wound management materials 35 capable of recording from 0–2500 mV, was used. 5-V (AA sized) alkaline cell was used to supply the necessary electromotive force. Initial experience with this equipment suggested that the combination provided a simple and reproducible technique for measuring strike-through, recording values that changed instantly from 0 mV to in excess of 1000 mV when strike-through occurred.

A microbiological liquid nutrient medium is introduced into both chambers one side of which contains a heavy inoculum of a suitable test organism. The apparatus is then incubated for an appropriate period after which the chamber containing the previously sterile nutrient solution is examined for evidence of growth. If no growth is visible, the dressing is considered to represent an effective bacterial barrier but, if growth is detected, samples are plated out to confi rm that it is the test organism not extraneous contamination from a failure in aseptic technique.
