Testing the Effectiveness of Your Autoclaving Process

Capabilities today. Flexibility for tomorrow.
Our Sterikon® plus bioindicator is a complete and easy-to-use tool for testing whether your autoclave’s sterilization process has been successful. Steam sterilization is used to prevent contamination and is essential for cGMP & cGLP operations. But your eyes can’t see whether your process was successful. The Sterikon® plus bioindicator can. The Sterikon® plus bioindicator is fully compliant with EP and USP standards and consists of ampoules that contain everything that’s required: nutrient broth, sugar, pH indicator and nonpathogenic bacterial spores. The ampoules display vibrant, color-coded results after autoclaving and incubation: red-violet indicates successful sterilization, whereas yellow-orange warns of an inadequate procedure signaling that you should take corrective measures.


Easy to use: simply autoclave, incubate, and read results.
Vibrant colors: red-violet indicates adequate sterilization; yellow-orange indicates inadequate sterilization.
Complete solution: the ampoules contain everything you need for the test.
Reliable results: fully compliant with USP guidelines.
Safe handling: secure, high-quality ampoules with nonpathogenic bacterial spores.
