Is Your Sterilizer Effective or Infective?
To be sure, you need to do a spore test

 

For the health & safety of your patients and staff, sterilizers must be biologically monitored (sporetested) to meet CDC, ADA and OSHA guidelines.

Q - How do you make sure that the instruments in your office are sterile?
A
- Do a spore test on a regular basis.

Important information from The Centers for Disease Control (CDC)  vol. 42/No. RR-8

Proper functioning of sterilization cycles should be verified by the periodic use (at least weekly) of biological indicators (i.e. spore tests).

Heat sensitive chemical indicators (e.g. those that change color after exposure to heat) alone do not ensure adequacy of a sterilization cycle but may be used on the outside of each pack to identify packs that have been processed through the heating cycle.

Here is what we will do for you ....

  • All positive reports are phoned in at once.
  • If you want the printed reports to be mailed to you every time, send the spore test with a self-addressed envelope.
  • Quarterly reports will be mailed to you free.
  • Toll free number 1-800-762-1586 for questions and consultation.
  • Consultation at no charge with our staff.
