“Establishing Best Practice in Steam Sterilization Monitoring: BIs & CIs”

STERIS University* presents…“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.

Learning Objectives

  1. Identify the needs for using sterility assurance monitoring products
  2. Explain the design and use of Biological and Chemical Indicators

There is no fee associated with this program.
