Clothing for protection against contact with blood and body fluids -- Determination of the resistance of protective clothing materials to penetration by blood and body fluids -- Test method using synthetic blood

ISO 16603:2004 describes a laboratory test method for measuring the penetration resistance of clothing materials to blood and body fluids. This test method uses a synthetic blood in continuous contact with the material specimen at specified set of conditions using the ISO 13994 test apparatus.

This test method is not always effective in testing protective clothing materials having thick, inner liners which readily absorb the synthetic blood.
