Mail-In Spore Testing. Simplified.
The easiest way to test your sterilizer.
No matter what type of sterilizer your office uses, our biological monitoring service will work for you. Our complete kits come with pre-labeled envelopes so all you have to do is run one of our biological indicator strips through your sterilizer and then drop it in the mail. We take care of the rest!
The 4 Simple Steps to Test Your Sterilizer:
STEP 1: ORDER
Create an account with us and order as many strips as you need based on the frequency of your testing. We will mail you a test kit that includes everything you need to verify that your sterilizer is functioning properly.
STEP 2: STERILIZE
Simply place the test strip in a standard run using your normal settings. Once the run is complete, return the control strip and test strip to us in our provided mailer.
STEP 3: ANALYZE
Spore strip testing is performed by certified laboratory technicians using a full 7 day incubation. An additional confirmation step is included for any unsatisfactory results to reduce the likelihood of false positives.
STEP 4: RESULTS
Documentation is provided via email and is always available to reprint from your account. Your office is notified immediately of confirmed positives by both email and phone.

"Biological indicators, or spore tests, are the most accepted means of monitoring sterilization because they assess the sterilization process directly by killing known highly resistant microorganisms (Geobacillus or Bacillus species). Mechanical and chemical indicators alone do not guarantee sterilization."
-Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
"Along with the proper sterilization of instruments and materials, sterilizer monitoring is an essential part of any in-office infection control program."
-American Dental Association (ADA)
"Biological indicators should be used within Process Challenge Devices for routine sterilizer efficacy monitoring at least weekly, but preferably every day that the sterilizer is in use."
