Load Release

The Load Release products provide you the assurance that the correct conditions required for effective sterilization have been achieved in the chamber.

Overview

By utilizing a process challenge device (PCD) in your sterilizer – such as biological indicators and test packs – you can rest assured that the conditions required for proper sterilization of even the most difficult instrument are being achieved, providing a snapshot of the conditions inside the sterilizer prior to releasing the load.

Assured AccuFast Self-Contained Biological Indicator

For biological testing for gravity cycles at 250°F/121°C, 270°F/132°C and 275°F/135°C.

The AccuFast Self-Contained Biological Indicator is for biological testing for gravity cycles at 250°F/121°C, 270°F/132°C and 275°F/135°C. The Biological Indicator consists of a plastic vial with an inoculated spore strip and sealed glass vial containing media placed inside. The outer vial is sealed with a plastic cap and filter paper. Small orifices in each cap provide for steam penetration. When the glass vial is crushed, the growth media flows onto the inoculated spore strip. The vial is then incubated and, if viable spores are present, the media color will change color.
