The Smart-Read EZTest® Biological Monitoring System allows an organization to release sterile product with true biological confirmation faster and easier than ever before. This unique system uses a real biological indicator (BI) -- with no added enzyme or chemical integrator -- which is incubated, evaluated, and documented in one simple, automated operation. 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.
The Smart-Read system includes the Smart-Read EZTest self-contained biological indicator which is specially designed for rapid evaluation in our advanced Smart-Well® incubator. Based on familiar, proven technology, the Smart-Read system can be implemented by any organization with minimal training and validation.
Though a highly sophisticated tool, the Smart-Well incubator is easy to configure and monitor with its simple touch-screen interface. The incubator can evaluate up to ten Smart-Read EZTest biological indicators independently, and contains an additional cell for a positive control unit. Each BI test result is automatically documented with a user-customizable printed report, and an alarm is sounded the moment that sterilization failure is detected. The incubator also contains an NIST-traceable thermometer marked at the appropriate incubation temperature to allow the operator to quickly verify proper operation.
The Smart-Well incubator is offered in a kit including the incubator itself, stylus, report printer, record book for storing reports, thermometer, and all necessary cabling.

The Smart-Read EZTest is a familiar self-contained color change biological indicator specifically designed for rapid evaluation in the Smart-Well incubator. It requires no special processing and can be used in place of any existing self-contained BI. The Smart-Read BI contains spores of Geobacillus stearothermophilus and is suitable for steam sterilization processes.
