STERIS announces the global launch of Spordex® Self-Contained Biological Indicator (SCBI) Ampoules to confirm sterilization of liquids in steam autoclave cycles. STERIS SCBI Ampoules are confirmed to provide a reduced incubation time (RIT) of 48 hours for fast and reliable results.
The new Spordex SCBI Ampoules provide an all-in-one system including spores, media, and pH indicator. The self-contained submersible biological indicator is used to test the worst-case locations in liquids or within your steam sterilizers and no activation is required after the sterilization cycle is complete. A vivid color change indicates positive results and microbial presence.
STERIS Spordex SCBI Ampoules are designed for validation, requalification, or routine use in any size steam sterilizer. Backed by a library of technical documentation, our Spordex SCBI Ampoules are manufactured and tested in accordance with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the United States Pharmacopeia (USP) standards.
Additionally, our technical services group is recognized for their global leadership, expertise, and customer support and satisfaction. Industry leading products and unparalleled technical service is the STERIS difference.
