The following example has 0 and negative values only -- not "both positive and negative values" in the ninth position, so we shouldn't delete the sublist:

masterlist={{{"AEST-01-C-10",1,1,1,2,31,1,C,-2.1},{"AEST-01-C-10",1,1,1,4,
31,1,C,-1.1},{"AEST-01-C-10",2,2,1,2,12,2,C,0.0}}};
CheckListQ[lst_]:=(Length[lst]\[Equal]3&&Length@Union@Sign@Last@Transpose@
lst>1)
DeleteCases[masterlist,_?CheckListQ]

{}
