Title (EN) USE OF HOLOGRAPHIC SENSOR TO DETERMINE STERILISATION
(FR) UTILISATION D’UN CAPTEUR HOLOGRAPHIQUE POUR DÉTERMINER LA STÉRILISATION
Abstract:
(EN) In a method of determining the effectiveness of a sterilization procedure using a biological indicator, the biological indicator comprises a holographic sensor and spores or an enzyme. The method and the biological indicator rely on the holographic sensor to indicate the effectiveness of me sterilisation procedure and do not require a conventional pH indicator, a fluorophore or chromophore.
(FR) Dans un procédé de détermination de l’efficacité d’une procédure de stérilisation au moyen d’un indicateur biologique, l’indicateur biologique comprend un capteur holographique et des spores ou une enzyme. Le procédé et l’indicateur biologique reposent sur le capteur holographique pour indiquer l’efficacité de la procédure de stérilisation et ne nécessite pas l’indicateur pH conventionnel, ni fluorophore ou chromophore.
