ATTEST BIOLOGICAL TEST INDICATOR VIALS  BX100  3M1262

FOR USE IN 3M118 INCUBATOR - SEE BELOW

This 3M Attest Indicator is for 132 degrees C vacuum assisted or 121 degrees C gravity steam sterilizers. It provides assurance of sterility by challenging the sterilizer with quantifiable, highly resistant spores. Incubation is for 48 hours.

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) in a test pack. The self-contained (BI) for 121° C (250° F) gravity/132° C (270° F) vacuum-assisted steam cycles consist of a Bacillus stearothermophilus spore strip; sealed glass ampule with growth medium and a bromocresol purple pH indicator system; brown color-coded cap with holes for sterilant penetration and a hydrophobic filter as a bacterial barrier, and a chemical indicator on the label that changes from rose to brown when processed. After sterilization, the vial is "crushed" to join the growth media with the processed spore strip. The BI is incubated for 48 hours for a visual change readout. A color change to yellow indicates surviving spores and a positive result.
