Terragene® Auto-Reader Incubator and Biological Indicators

Terragene® Auto-Reader Incubator and Biological Indicators

Designed for the incubation and readout of biological indicators for steam sterilization process control, the Auto-Reader Incubator allows for rapid detection of positive and negative biological indicators for one hour at 140ºF to indicate whether a sterilization process has been completed successfully or not. The Auto-Reader Incubator has 12 positions for incubation. The dual temperature system has the option for the user to select between two different incubation temperatures of 37 ºC or 60 ºC. The Auto-Reader Incubator features a button to set an incubation time for half of the positions and another to select a different incubation time for the remaining positions. This allows a department to run different incubation times simultaneously. It is equipped with a readout system and a printer to record the results. In addition, the auto-reader can be connected to a computer by USB cable. This allows linking the results with the Terragene® Bionova® Traceability Software for Automatic Reading and Traceability of Biological Indicators.

The “KPCD222-C” process challenge device test pack from Terragene® is a 10.5 x 6.5 x 1.8 cm disposable pre-assembled package. It consists of the following: one “BT222” biological indicator, one IT26-C moving-front Type 5 Integrator Indicator, a self-adhesive record card to document sterilization data, and a Type 1 process indicator on the outside of the package. The “KPCD222-C” challenge device is used in steam sterilizers for routine sterilizer monitoring. The test pack is placed in a steam sterilizer as a challenge to the sterilization process in order to evaluate the performance of the sterilization cycle.

The “BT222” consists of a polypropylene tube, polypropylene cap with holes and a steam permeable barrier. Each tube contains a population of Geobacillus stearothermophilus ATCC 7953 spores soaked on a spore carrier and a purple colored culture medium specially formulated to promote growth of G. stearothermophilus, within a glass ampoule, which is over a filter and the carrier at the base of the tube. A positive BI result indicates a failure in the sterilization process and can be noted by the culture medium color change of the indicator from purple to yellow. Read More...

INTEGRAPH (#CI-101) Mutli-Function Steam Sterilization Integrator

INTEGRAPH (#CI-101) Mutli-Function Steam Sterilization Integrator

• Unique multi-function integrator with three ink chemistry - the first line 1 is a process indicator, the second line 2 is an integrator, and third 3 indicates “excess-sterilization.” • The Integraph turns dark brown under the condition of superheated steam. • Will not complete a color change if excess air is present. • Interpretation guide 4 is printed right on the Integraph. • Vivid purple to green color change makes the interpretation easy. • Approved by the FDA, meets ISO and EN standards as a true integrator.
