Establishing Best Practice in Steam Sterilization Monitoring: BIs & CIs
The goal of sterility assurance is to verify and maintain the sterility of medical instrumentation until it is used on a patient. Healthcare professionals use a combination of products to ensure that the critical parameters of sterilization have been met, and this webinar will review two of those: Biological Indicators (BIs) and Chemical Indicators (CIs).
BIs are used to confirm the lethality of the sterilization process or cycle by demonstrating the process’s ability to kill a large population of resistant endospores. CIs provide evidence that one or more of the critical parameters have been achieved within critical areas of the sterilizer and packages.
