...are monitored with chemical and biological indicators within the instrument load. A biological indicator (BI) is "a device consisting of a known number of microorganisms, of known resistance to the mode of sterilization, in or on a carrier and enclosed in a protective package. " After sterilization, the BIs...

Estimating the Effects of EtO BIER-Vessel Operating Precision on D-Value Calculations D-values for several ranges of expected BIER-vessel performance have been calculated and compared with a common BI-certificate value. Commercially available biological indicators (BIs) are of critical importance...

...and maintenance of steady-state conditions, this article focuses only on the three primary parameters. The effects of these factors were studied at the researchers' laboratories using biological indicator evaluator resistometer (BIER) vessels. Designed for the calibration of biological indicators...

...processing cycle consists of three steps: preconditioning, sterilization, and aeration. Prior to sterilization, biological indicators (BIs) are placed in the product load, which is...

Sterilization Methods Stand the Test of Time The development of biological indicators and parametric release has led to improvements in sterilization processes and shifts in industry preferences. Karl J. Hemmerich, John Masefield, and Jerry R. Nelson Over the past 25 years, the medical device...

Medical Device & Diagnostic Industry Deliberate decision making during the structuring of microbial challenges, product loads, and biological indicators can provide a validation process for EtO sterilization that ensures accuracy, the absence of microbes, and a smooth testing procedure. A companion...

...the concept of accumulated lethality the time of exposure to a lethal agent required to cause a selected reduction in the survivorship of a biological indicator (BI) population has proven very useful. The availability of models describing survivorship when moist heat is the lethal agent has enabled...
