Steam Biological Indicators

Crosstex offers a comprehensive line of Biological Indicators (BIs) used to monitor steam sterilization processes.  Our BIs and Prepared Culture Media are designed to meet ISO 11138 and USP standards. Biological Indicators are:

  • Used to evaluate the effectiveness of steam sterilization processes
  • Essential in performing sterilization cycle validation during steam sterilization processes
  • Available in different populations, packaging, and configurations. Custom-made Biological Indicators are also available
  • Convenient to use, requiring only minimal training
  • Validated with a reduced incubation time of 24 hours, when used in conjunction with Crosstex’ Prepared Culture Media (Spore Strips, Spore Discs, Spore Threads and Spore Wires)
