Keywords: Radiation, Sterilization, Hydrogen Peroxide

SGM Biotech manufactures a wide array of self-contained and traditional biological indicators to monitor most common sterilization processes: steam, low temperature steam formaldehyde, ethylene oxide, propylene oxide, dry heat, chlorine dioxide, hydrogen peroxide, and gamma radiation.

We can also create custom indicators to meet your unique sterilization monitoring requirements. In addition, we have an entire laboratory dedicated to contract studies where we can perform D-value and SEM studies with your specific products.

All products with incubation times of less than 7 days meet the FDA protocol for Reduced Incubation Time (RIT).

The Smart-Read system allows the release of sterile product with true biological confirmation faster and easier than ever before. This unique system uses a real biological indicator -- with no added enzyme or chemical integrator -- which is incubated, evaluated, and documented in one simple, automated operation. Based on familiar, proven technology, all results are 100% verifiable by the operator.

The Smart-Read system includes the Smart-Read EZTest self-contained biological indicator for steam which is specially designed for rapid evaluation in the advanced Smart-Well® incubator.

Smart-Read EZTest Biological Indicator Monitoring System

Relying only upon bacterial spore growth, the Smart-Read system can detect sterilization failure in as few as three to five hours, and negative results can be confirmed with an additional five hours of incubation. This unique system uses a real biological indicator -- with no added enzyme or chemical integrator -- which is incubated, evaluated, and documented in one simple, automated operation.

Releasat Ethylene Oxide Biological Indicator Spore Strip Culturing Kit

Using strict aseptic techniques and working in a Class 100 certified work station, transfer each biological indicator to an appropriate tube of Releasat Culture media. If the spores survive the sterilization cycle, the Releasat media will turn from purple to yellow in 24 hours, or red to yellow in 72 hours. Releasat medium is used to culture the SGMStrip in place of "generic" soybean casein digest medium and provides a more rapid read-out.
