Spores strips, ampoules and suspensions

General Informations

Bacterial spores are used to monitor the efficiency of sterilization processes. Effective sterilization requires complete destruction of microorganisms achieved through a complex interaction of physical and/or chemical conditions. Biological indicators can be used to assure the required Sterility Assurance Level (SAL) ? 10-6 gke biological indicators are suitable for the validation and monitoring of sterilization processes. For special application it is possible to prepare specific indicators. Standard indicators are used for the sterilization processes mentioned in the table below.


gke produces biological indicator spore strips, suspensions, ampoules and self-contained biological indicators (SCBI). For SCBIs see separate data sheet. All biological indicators are referenced to the numbers of American Type Culture Collection (ATCC
