FR Recognition Number 6-411
Standard
ASTM D6499-18
Standard Test Method for Immunological Measurement of Antigenic Protein in Hevea Natural Rubber (HNR) and its Products
Scope/Abstract
1.1 This test method covers an immunological method to determine the amount of antigenic protein in Hevea Natural Rubber and its products using rabbit antisera specific for HNRL proteins. This immunoassay procedure quantitatively measures the level of antigenic latex proteins in solution using an inhibition format. The samples may include glove or other product extracts which have been collected in order to measure the HNR levels. Although this method detects antigenic proteins, it should not be considered as a measure of allergenic proteins. Correlation of protein/antigen levels with the level of allergenic proteins has not been fully established.

1.2 For the purpose of this test method, the range of protein will be measured in terms of microgram to milligram quantities.

1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

Extent of Recognition
Complete standard
Rationale for Recognition
This standard is relevant to medical devices and is recognized on its scientific and technical merit and/or because it supports existing regulatory policies.
Transition Period
FDA recognition ASTM D6499-16 [Rec# 6-383] will be superseded by recognition of ASTM D6499-18 [Rec# 6-411]. FDA will accept declarations of conformity, in support of premarket submissions, to [Rec# 6-383] until December 28, 2019. After this transition period, declarations of conformity to [Rec# 6-383] will not be accepted.
