Elevate Sterilization Monitoring in Industrial Spaces

Introducing the UniQ industrial biological indicators, your ultimate solution for precise sterilization monitoring in industrial spaces, even in challenging situations. While spore strips and ampoules may not be suitable for certain manufacturing scenarios due to size, packaging, or carrier material limitations. Mesa UniQ® Biological Indicators are designed to address these challenges and assist in validating the sterilization process.

  • Specialized Solutions: UniQ industrial biological indicators are modified or specially created to cater to the unique needs of the medical device and pharmaceutical industries.
  • Flexible and Versatile: Designed to address limitations posed by size, packaging, or carrier material, these indicators provide a reliable solution for monitoring sterilization processes.
  • Empowering Validation: Manufacturers and validation specialists can trust Mesa UniQ industrial biological indicators to ensure the effectiveness of sterilization in their specific settings.

Paper Discs

Paper discs (6mm) have been used to validate sterilization of contact lenses in steam where placement of a strip was impossible due to its size. They are also suitable for EO, Dry Heat.

UniQ Disc

The stainless-steel Disc (7mm) is inoculated with 103 or 106 B. pumilus spores and packaged in clear plastic. The clear plastic package will not impede UV light and provides protection from post-process contamination.

UniQ MicroStrips

At 2x10mm or 1x25mm, MicroStrips can be placed in small areas where other standard BIs are too large. UniQ MicroStrips are available inoculated with Bacillus atrophaeus, Geobacillus stearothermophilus, or Bacillus subtilis 5230.

UniQ Thread

Threads (Length: 19mm Diameter: 1.5mm) have been used at the interface of a syringe and plunger to show sterilant penetration and efficacy at that point. Other uses include placement in tubing and small vials. UniQ threads are 100% cotton, 3/4″ long, and are inoculated with B. atrophaeus. The device/lumen into which the thread is inserted affects its resistance characteristics.

UniQ Proline®

Biological Indicator system designed for use in the validation or monitoring of steam sterilization cycles of tubing ranging from 1/8″ to 5/8″ tubing ID. Contains a filter paper disc inoculated with bacterial spores of Geobacillus stearothermophilus.

UniQ Spore Suspensions

Spore suspensions are calibrated suspensions of bacterial spores appropriate for direct inoculation of products or preparing custom biological indicators for monitoring Steam, Ethylene Oxide (EtO),Dry Heat, Hydrogen Peroxide, Radiation and other industrial sterilization processes. Each vial contains 10 ml of suspension. The suspending liquid is 20%, 29%, or 40% ethanol or purified water.
