- The Biological Indicator provides the highest level of assurance that the sterilization cycle is working effectively and all micro-organisms were destroyed.
- Steam sterilizers which have not been calibrated or validated should be monitored by a weekly test using a biological Indicator or alternatively each load must be processed with a biological emulator. The preferred test organism for steam sterilization is Geobacillus Stearothermophilus.*
