Self- Contained Biological Indicators by Terragene

Terragene self-contained biological indicators were developed to control steam, dry heat, ethylene oxide, peroxide hydrogen plasma and formaldehyde sterilization processes. Biological indicators contain bacterial spores embedded in a carrier packaged within a special plastic tube. Inside the tube, there is a sealed-glass ampoule with a specially-formulated culture medium containing a pH indicator which turns dramatically to yellow when spores grow. Bionova® biological indicators produce visible results within 24 hours (steam, hydrogen peroxide) or 48 hours (ethylene oxide, formaldehyde).


Why use Self- Contained Biological Indicators?
