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.
