Description

BT80 / Self-contained Biological Indicator for Moist Heat decontamination process. Bacillus atrophaeus (ATCC 9372) 10^4 spores per vial. Readout: 48 hours.

Bionova® BT80 Biological Indicator has been specifically designed for monitoring of Moist Heat decontamination processes, such as microwave and radiofrequence irradiation processes intended for medical waste disposal treatment.

If the decontamination process was not successful, the indicator medium would turn from blue to yellow after incubation at 37±2 °C, thus indicating the presence of living Bacillus atrophaeus spores.

If the decontamination process was successful, indicator medium would remain blue after incubation. The final readout should be carried out after 48 hours of incubation at 37±2 °C.

Instructions for use

1. Identify the Bionova® BT80 Indicator Tube by writing the machine number (in case there is more than one), load number, and processing date on the indicator label.

2. Place the biological indicator along with the items to be decontaminated in an appropriated package according to recommended decontamination practices. Place this package in those areas which a priori you consider most inaccessible for the decontamination agent (Moist Heat). Generally a problematic area is the center of the load.

3. Proceed as usual.

4. After the decontamination process has finished, allow the load to cool down to room temperature and remove the biological indicator from the load for its incubation .

5. Crush the glass ampoule contained in the biological indicator and incubate at 37±2 ºC.

IMPORTANT: Use a non-processed biological indicator as positive control each time a processed indicator is incubated. The positive control ensures that correct incubation conditions were met.

6. Incubate the processed biological indicator and the indicator used as positive control for a maximum of 48 hours at 37±2 ºC. Reading should be performed at convenient intervals of 10 hours.

A color change to yellow of the growth indicator medium means a decontamination process failure has occurred. If after 48 hours there is no color change in the processed indicators, a final negative result is obtained, thus the decontamination process was succesful. The positive control indicator should show a color change to yellow for the results to be valid.
