Biological Indicator Vial

Various brand biological indicators provide the best assurance of sterility by challenging the steam sterilizer with quantifiable, highly resistant Geobacillus stearothermophilus spores and providing results quickly. Biological indicators are used for load control monitoring, which is the process by which a load is monitored and released based on the result of a biological indicator (BI) in a test pack.

3M Biological Indicator Vial
3M Biological Indicator Vial
The 3M Attest system provides results within 48 hours. The self-contained BI for 250°F/121°C gravity and 270°F /132°C vacuum-assisted steam cycles consist of a Geobacillus stearothermophilus spore strip, sealed glass ampule with growth medium and a bromocresol purple pH indicator system, brown color-coded cap with holes for sterilant penetration and a filter as a bacterial barrier, and a chemical indicator on the label that changes from rose to brown when processed. After sterilization, the vial is "crushed" to join the growth media with the processed spore strip. The BI is incubated for 48 hours for a visual color change readout. A color change to yellow indicates surviving spores and a positive result. Store at USP controlled room temperature. Sold 25 vials per box.

ProSpore2 Biological Indicator Vial
ProSpore2 Biological Indicator Vial
ProSpore2 is ideal for in-office validation and monitoring of steam sterilizers. It consists of a paper disk carrier containing Geobacillus stearothermophilus spores. The disk is enclosed in a plastic tube along with a glass vial containing media for growing the bacterial spores. Bromocresol purple has been added to assist in detecting spore growth. The outgrowth of spores decreases pH, causing a color change from purple to yellow. A shorter incubation period allows a validated 24-hour result. Includes biological indicators, testing incubator, record-keeping system, and vial crusher. Sold 50 per box.
