Rapid Readout Biological Indicator test pack for EO, Includes 25 test packs + 5 controls, 4 hour readout, Green cap (25/box)
Biological indicators provide the best assurance of sterility by challenging the sterilizer with quantifiable, highly resistant spores. The system includes rapid readout biological indicators, disposable test packs, auto-readers and record keeping. Biological indicators are used for load control monitoring, which is the process by which a load is monitored and released based on the result of a biological indicator (BI).
3M™ Attest™ 1294 Rapid Readout Biological Indicator for EO
The 3M™ Attest™ 1294 Rapid Readout Biological Indidcator for Ethylene Oxide contains a standardized, viable population of Bacillus atrophaeus spores. The 3M™ Attest™ 1294 Rapid Readout Biological Indicator indicates sublethal processing by providing a fluorescent readout after 4 hours of incubation. The visual color change readout is the same readout method utilized in other self-contained biological indicators.
3M™ Attest™ 1298 or 1298F EO Test Pack
A pre-assembled, EO plastic disposable test pack with a 3M™ Attest™ 1294 biological indicator at the end of a challenging path. The pack is used to monitor all EO cycles. The pack is designed to present a resistant challenge to the EO sterilization process similar to the AAMI routine syringe test pack.
