Biological Indicator System

The Smart BI SYSTEM delivering SPEED and PRODUCTIVITY in 30 minutes!

Built-in chemical indicator provides quick identification of processed versus unprocessed BIs

Barcode data on BI electronically stores the serial number, lot number, and expiration date

Simple push with a cap activates the BI

READS WITH CERTAINTY

Optical Fluorescence Technology eliminates subjectivity of visual interpretation of results.

Activation

The ⍺-glucosidase enzyme is generated naturally during growth of Geobacillus stearothermophilus and released during spore germination

Detection

The ⍺-glucosidase enzyme in its active state is detected by measuring the fluorescence produced by the enzymatic hydrolysis of a non-fluorescent substrate, 4-methylumbelliferyl ⍺ D-glucoside (MUG)

Result

The resultant fluorescent by-product, 4 methylumbelliferone (MU), is detected in the reader and the fluorescent signal is used to determine the positive or negative result of the biological indicator
