Title
(EN) BIOLOGICAL STERILIZATION INDICATOR
(FR) INDICATEUR DE STÉRILISATION BIOLOGIQUE
Abstract
(EN)
A biological sterilization indicator for evaluating the effectiveness of a sterilization process includes a cap containing a culture medium, a container containing a concentration of microorganism, and a breakable barrier attached to the cap to encapsulate the culture medium therein. The breakable barrier is formed from a multilayer structure including an aluminum layer and a sealing layer. The biological indicator is configured such that the breakable barrier may be broken at a selected time by engaging the cap and the container at an activated position to introduce the culture medium into the container.
(FR)
Indicateur de stérilisation biologique pour évaluer l'efficacité d'un procédé de stérilisation comprenant un capuchon contenant un milieu de culture, un récipient contenant une concentration de micro-organisme et une barrière cassable fixée au capuchon pour encapsuler le milieu de culture en son sein. La barrière cassable est formée à partir d'une structure multicouche comprenant une couche d'aluminium et une couche d'étanchéité. L'indicateur biologique est configuré de telle sorte que la barrière cassable peut être rompue à un moment choisi par mise en prise du capuchon et du récipient à une position activée pour introduire le milieu de culture dans le récipient.
