Sterilty Assurance

BCR-30-min BI™

A Rapid Biological Indicator for sterility assurance

BCR has exploited the self-reporting ability of F-spores™ to develop a line of rapid biological indicators (BCR-30-min BI™) for monitoring diverse types of commercially-used sterilizers using steam, ethylene oxide, hydrogen peroxide, peracetic acid, ozone, and other agents.

The BCR-30-min BI™ is an unprecedented biological indicator because it combines the simplicity of traditional biological indicators with a 30-min readout compared to 24 or more hours of incubation time for traditional indicators. The BCR-30-min BI™ is packaged in a glassine envelope identical to that of a traditional BI (see figure below).    

Sales of the BCR-30-min BI™ are anticipated in the near future, pending FDA premarketing 510(k) clearance.
