Small individually or bulk-packaged discs of filter paper, polyflex, or stainless-steel coupons inoculated with bacteria spores for monitoring ethylene oxide (EO), dry heat, and saturated steam sterilization,or hydrogen peroxide vapor biodecontamination.
STERIS Spordex® Biological Indicator coupons can be small discs of special filter paper, polyflex, or stainless steel coupons inoculated with bacteria spores, either Bacillus atrophaeus (BA) for ethylene oxide and dry heat sterilization, or Geobacillus stearothermophilus (GS) for saturated steam or hydrogen peroxide vapor biodecontamination. Discs and coupons are either packaged in bulk or individually packaged in glassine or Tyvek®. Biological Indicators with known resistances and spore populations are available to ensure consistent biodecontamination monitoring.
HOW SPORDEX BIOLOGICAL INDICATOR COUPONS WORK
STERIS' Spordex Biological Indicator coupons can be placed inside your devices to create a customized challenge device or put in the load in their sealed envelope. After the biodecontamination cycle is complete, coupons should be transferred aseptically to media and incubated.
