Celerity™ 20 HP Biological Indicator
- Provides fast results within 20 minutes
- Easy-to-use and activate – biological indicator requiring no separate activator
- Single-use biological indicator for use with V-PRO® Low Temperature Sterilization Systems and STERRAD Systems*1
The Celerity 20 HP Biological Indicator is a rapid-read, single-use biological indicator designed to monitor vaporized hydrogen peroxide (VHP) sterilization processes. This VHP biological indicator provides a final read within 20 minutes of incubation. The biological indicator is self-contained, reducing the risk of contamination and consequent false positives. Each biological indicator (BI) vial is inoculated with Geobacillus stearothermophilus bacterial spores and contains a defined media within the vial cap. The vial cap label features a process indicator for hydrogen peroxide sterilization.
How the Celerity 20 HP Biological Indicator Works
After a VHP sterilization cycle, the process indicator on the vial cap will provide immediate confirmation of processing. The biological indicator (BI) is activated using a twist and flick motion and does not require a separate activator. Upon activation, the BI is incubated using the Celerity™ HP Incubator. A negative response provided by the incubator, within 20 minutes, indicates conditions for sterilization were achieved.
Why the Celerity 20 HP Biological Indicator?
Speed and Ease of Use
The Celerity 20 HP Biological Indicator provides rapid results within 20 minutes so you can have confidence when releasing loads after VHP sterilization.
The Celerity 20 HP BI provides expedited monitoring of cycles in a V-PRO or STERRAD® Sterilizer*1. The BI allows you to monitor cycles with up to 50 lbs. of devices in less than 50 minutes when used in the Non Lumen Cycle of the V-PRO maX or maX 2 Sterilizers.
