NAMSA offers a full line of spore strips for use in
monitoring sterilization processes. Spore strips consist
of inoculated filter paper, 6 mm x 30 mm, packaged
in glassine peel pouches or envelopes. The glassine
packaging provides protection from environmental
contaminants during transport post exposure. The spore
strips can be easily removed from the glassine pouch by
tearing or peeling the pouch open for transfer to culture
media or challenge device assembly. Spore strips are
available in populations from 102 to 108 for each organism.
The most popular spore strips are manufactured using state of the art equipment, which provides assurance that each glassine pouch contains a BI consistent in population, purity and dimension. Spore strips are packaged in shelf packs of 100 and labeled with a 15 to 24 month shelf-life based on the organism. Store strips under room temperature conditions (15 - 30º C). Each pack is accompanied by a certificate of analysis. Spore strips are certified for population, purity, and resistance (D-value, Z-value, survival and kill where applicable). NAMSA Biological Indicator strips are compliant with ANSI/AAMI/ISO/ EN 11138 series of standards and USP where applicable.
