The VERIFY™ V24I Self-Contained Biological Indicator (SCBI) is for use in monitoring the Amsco™ V-PRO™ 60, Amsco™ V-PRO™ maX and Amsco™ V-PRO™ 1 Plus Low Temperature Sterilization Systems.
Each indicator is completely self-contained, providing 10 -6 colony forming units (CFU) of Geobacillus stearothermophilus and an ampoule of specially formulated growth medium with a pH indicator. The Verify V24I Self-Contained Biological Indicator is designed to be sealed after processing, reducing the risk of contamination (and consequent false positives) and evaporation of growth medium.
A chemical process indicator on each vial provides immediate proof of processing. Following incubation, a vivid color change of the growth media from orange to yellow and/or turbidity gives unmistakable evidence of microbial growth. If no microbial growth occurs, the media remains orange and clear (no turbidity).
STERIS has validated a 24-hour incubation time for the Verify V24I Self-Contained Biological Indicator. Sufficient growth medium is provided for incubation up to 7 days, if desired.
The HP Activator for VERIFY™ Self-Contained Biological Indicator (one step process quickly seals and crushes the vial preparing it for incubation) and the Incubator are sold separately.
