DioSpore Controller “closed germ-carriers”: Bioindicators with Geobacillus stearothermophilus

German guidelines by Robert-Koch-Institut (RKI), European norms as well as international standards recommend a reliable disinfection validation testing of H2O2 room disinfection procedures with spores such as Geobacillus Stearothermophillus. These spore strips are enriched with blood and also wrapped up in a special membrane in order to prevent operating errors and wrong results.

This microbiological method meets standard DIN EN 11138. 1-3 DioSpore controllers per 15m3 are recommended in order to achieve a gapless validation.

Advantages of disinfection validation testing with DioSpore-Controllers

  • A risk of contamination for people who get in touch with the bioindicator is excluded for technical reasons
  • The handling of the bioindicators is very easy due to the safe membrane technique
  • Storage and transport of the bioindicators are uncomplictated
  • The risk of recontamination after use is not possible. This leads to 100% safe disinfection validation results (“closed germ carriers”)
  • The placing ot the bioindicators is self-explanatory as they can be put anywhere in the room (also beneath the ceiling through a prefabricated opening)
