Spore Ampoules (Steam low temp) - 106 Bacillus subtillis Cell Line 350
AB5-06E

Excelsior offers spore ampoules for use in monitoring the efficacy of steam sterilization processes. Spore ampoules are ideal for use in validation of liquid sterilisation cycles. No activation is required; simply expose spore ampoule to sterilization process and incubate. Spore ampoules are available in several configurations.

All spore ampoules are hermetically sealed type I borosilicate glass containing a modified Soybean Casein Digest Broth with bromocresol purple pH indicator and the specified population of Geobacillus stearothermophilus spores. Growth is evident by either turbidity and/or a colour shift from a purple to or toward a yellow colour.

Excelsior Spore Suspensions are pure suspensions of viable spores with known resistance characteristics and population levels. The convenience of the Spore Suspensions allows for direct inoculation of products, typically to verify sterility of devices where a traditional BI strip cannot be used. They can also be used for a variety of other microbiological tests including cleaning effectiveness studies, Bioburden percent recovery and Bacteriostasis/Fungistasis (BF) testing.

Excelsior Spore Suspensions are packaged in 10 mL volumes and are sold in pharmaceutical grade glass vials with screw cap and septum which allows for withdrawal of the suspension using either a pipette or a needle and syringe assembly. The Spores are suspended in Water for Injection (WFI) in a variety of population levels standardised per 0.1mL. We are also able to provide spores in WFI with up to 40% ethanol mixture upon request.
