Monitoring your autoclave couldn’t be easier with the convenient SporAmpule.
Easy to use!
Process one or more SporAmpules, along with your normal load, then incubate at 55-60°C for 48 hours and observe for a color change. No activation, crushing, or additional culture media is required with this hermetically sealed product. Because SporAmpule is a completely sealed system, there is no chance of contamination.
Sterilization failure is noted when spore growth occurs (purple to yellow color change and visible turbidity) with a processed SporAmpule. An unprocessed SporAmpule should always be incubated as a control.
Each SporAmpule contains spores of Geobacillus stearothermophilus suspended in their own culture media in a hermetically sealed glass ampule.
A "Certificate of Performance" stating spore population, Z- value, D-value, and expiration date is included with every shipment. 18 month shelf-life.
