Three hour readout, brown cap, Rapid Readout Biological Indicator for Steam 250°F/121°C gravity or 270°F/132°C vacuum assisted sterilization cycles

Biological indicators provide the best assurance of sterility by challenging the sterilizer with quantifiable, highly resistant Geobacillus stearothermophilus spores. The system includes Rapid Readout biological indicators, disposable test packs, an auto reader and log books. 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(TM) Attest(TM) 1292 Rapid Readout Biological Indicators for 121(deg)C/250(deg)F gravity and 132(deg)C/270(deg)F vacuum assisted cycles Self contained BI for 121(deg)C/250(deg)F gravity and 132(deg)C/270(deg)F vacuum assisted cycles consisting of a Geobacillus stearothermophilus spore strip; sealed glass ampule with growth medium and dual 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 three hours in the 3M(TM) Attest(TM) 290 Series Auto reader for a fluorescent reading. Note: These products must be used with Cat. No. 290 3M(TM) Attest(TM) Auto reader.
