- Biological indicator vials are easy to use and interpret with visual color readout.
- Self-contained biological indicators significantly reduce possibility of contamination, minimizing false positives and assuring more accurate results.
Biological Indicator for steam 270°F/132°C vacuum assisted or 250°F/121°C gravity displacement sterilization cycles, 48 hour test result (brown cap).
Biological indicators that monitor the effectiveness of the steam sterilization process and provide results within 24-48 hours. Biological indicators provide the best assurance of sterility by challenging the sterilizer with quantifiable, highly resistant spores. Biological indicators are used for Load Monitoring which is the process by which a load is monitored and released based on the result of a biological indicator (BI).
Biological indicators are the only method that indicates the sterilization process was effective and the spores were killed. A nonpathogenic but highly resistant spore, Geobacillus stearothermophilus, is used to provide a maximum challenge to the steam sterilization process
