Crosstex offers specialized Spore Threads (cotton) and Spore Wires (steel) for Ethylene Oxide (EO) Sterilization inoculated with Bacillus atrophaeus (Cell Line 9372) spores.
Ideal for use in tubing, lumens and other devices/instruments where larger BIs and carriers cannot be utilized
Crosstex’s manufacturing process is designed to ensure that the entire length of the threads and wires contains a consistent number of spores
Spore Wires have a rigid structure which allows for easy insertion and removal from a device
The steel construction in our Spore Wires does not absorb moisture which is ideal when there is condensation within the lumen
A reduced incubation time of 72 hours for Ethylene Oxide (EO) sterilization have been validated when used in conjunction with Crosstex Prepared Culture Media (GMBTB-100)
