You can use a VM with virtualbox with Linux/Windows. Use vmdktool or makefs -t cd9660 to create a vmdk file or iso file and mount it on VM. The AV software will analyze it. You can have multiple VMs each one with different AV software and mount/umount the disk. Note here that iso images are read only and perhaps you could mount it on several VM simultaneously.
