After the sterilization cycle, crush the media ampoule with the tool provided or by squeezing the sides of the plastic tube by hand. The unit is properly activated when the media has been released from the ampoule and the spore disc is in contact with the released media.
Each unit is labeled with lot number, expiration, manufacturer and species of organism. Unit has a process indicator on it to assist the user in distinguishing an exposed from an unprocessed unit. Refer to box label and product insert for storage conditions, species, manufacturer contact information and instructions for use.
The control unit should exhibit a color change to or toward yellow and/or turbidity. If the control unit does not show signs of growth, consider the test invalid.
