There are many different organizations that reference biological indicator use and often times it can be difficult to stay on top of what the latest standards say with regard to BI monitoring. Whether it discusses how many BIs should be used per load or how a manufacturer should qualify its BI supplier, it is important to stay connected to these vital industry resources.
Mesa has compiled a collection of “Related Links” on its newly redesigned website highlighting the organizations that are most relevant for BI users such as:
The Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI) which is dedicated to increasing the understanding, safety, and efficacy of medical instrumentation.
ISO (International Organization for Standardization) which is the world’s largest developer of voluntary International Standards.
www.CDC.gov is the Center for Disease Control’s primary online communication channel and provides users with credible, reliable health information on regulation control.
The United States Pharmacopeia (USP) which is a scientific nonprofit organization that sets standards for the identity, strength, quality, and purity of medicines, food ingredients, and dietary supplements manufactured, distributed and consumed worldwide.
