PREFACE
This Standard was prepared by the Joint Standards Australia/Standards New Zealand Committee
FT-004, Food Microbiology, to supersede part of AS 1766.1.2: 1991, Food microbiology, Method 1.2:
General procedures and techniquesPreparation of dilutions.
This Standard is identical to and reproduced from ISO 6887-1:1999, Microbiology of food and animal
feeding stuffsPreparation of test samples, initial suspension and decimal dilutions for
microbiological examination, Part 1: General rules for the preparation of the initial suspension and
decimal dilutions.
This Standard was prepared by the Australian members of the Joint Standards Australia/Standards
New Zealand Committee FT-004. After consultation with stakeholders in both countries, Standards
Australia and Standards New Zealand decided to develop this Standard as an Australian Standard
rather than an Australian/New Zealand Standard.
The objective of this Standard is to specify general rules for the aerobic preparation of the initial
suspension and of decimal dilutions for microbiological examinations of products intended for human
and animal consumption.
As this Standard is reproduced from an International Standard, the following applies:
(a) In the source text, this part of ISO 6887 should read this Australian Standard.
(b) A full point substitutes for a comma when referring to a decimal marker.
(c) Substitute mL for ml wherever it appears.
References to International Standards should be replaced by references to equivalent Australian
Standards as follows:

The laboratory should have a clearly defined quality control system to ensure that the apparatus,
culture media, reagents and technique are suitable for the test. The use of positive controls is part of
this system.
