Biological Indicator Incubation and Reduced Incubation Time (RIT)

In this 45-minute webinar you will learn who the new ISO standard affects, how it applies to you, and how it compares to the previous method. We will also review reduced incubation times (RIT), the recommendations for delayed cultivation, and steps to confirm a positive BI result.

Topics covered include the new ISO 11138-8 for Reduced Incubation Time (RIT), what to do when you get an unexpected biological indicator result, guidance for Biological Indicator Cultivation .

Why perform a Product D-value study?

In this 30-minute webinar where we will cover the importance of product d-value studies.

 D-value studies are needed to know the impact that the properties of the material to be sterilized have on the resistance of microorganisms and to prove that the biological indicator used to validate the cycle represents an adequate challenge to ensure the required sterility assurance level (SAL) on the product being sterilized. 

Topics covered include standards and references on D-values, parameters affecting microorganism resistance, liquid pharmaceutical D-value studies, custom made biological indicators. 

Incoming Testing on Biological Indicators: Population Assessment

Total viable spore count testing is a common in-coming inspection test for biological indicators that you can use to ensure the quality of the product.

In this 30-minute webinar, we will cover:

  • Standards & References
  • Recommended procedures by Mesa Labs
  • Provide recommendations, and technical articles on how to proceed with your in-house testing. 

Incoming Testing on Biological Indicators: Purity & Identification

During this 30-minute webinar we will cover:

  • Different Approaches to Microbial Identification

Incoming Testing on Biological Indicators: Resistance Verification

Total viable spore count testing, purity, identification, and resistance verification are common in-coming inspection tests for biological indicators (BI) that an end-user can use to ensure the quality of the product they are receiving. 

In this 30-minute webinar, we will cover:

  • D-value
  • Survival and kill time verification on Biological Indicators
  • Standards to follow and the equipment required to carry out these tests properly
