BIOLOGICAL INDICATORS



Rups Self-Contained Biological Indicator (SCBI) is specifically designed for the monitoring of vacuum assisted steam sterilization processes at 121o 134o C and the gravity displacement steam sterilization cycles at 121o 123o C. The ampoules contain Geobacillus Stearothermophilus spores on a filter-paper carrier as well as growth media. The population of the spores are 106. Each ampoule has a chemical process indicator enabling to recognize processed SCBIs.

Rups Self-Contained Biological Indicator (SCBI) is specifically designed for the monitoring of Ethylene-oxide sterilization processes.

The ampoules contain Bacillus Atrophaeus spores on a paper filter carrier as well as growth media. The population of the spores are 106. Each ampoule has a chemical process indicator enabling to recognize processed SCBIs.

Incubators for SCBI have a capacity for 13 ampoules.

Steam SCBI: The incubation time for steam SCBIs is 24 hours at 56+/- 2o C.

EtO SCBI: The incubation for EtO SCBIs is 48 hours at 37+/- 2o C.

Incubators are suited for 220V, 50Hz.
