Protak Scientific - Enzymatic Indicators (EI)
Principle: Direct alternative to biological indicators
Suitability: Rapid microbial method (RMM)
Capital equipment required: No
Developed over the last fifteen years as a rapid microbial method (RMM) of measuring the efficacy, distribution, and performance of cold process decontaminations such as hydrogen peroxide (vH2O2, VHP, HVP, iHP) Ethylene Oxide etc.
Using the PR2A Luminometer, an automated system that accurately and repeatedly measures light in RLU from enzyme driven luminescent reaction.
As a direct alternative to traditional biological indicators. EI’s are inexpensive and carry a low risk for adoption and swiftly return the initial investment with significantly improved quality control and validation. This, in turn, advances decontamination validation and can remove “run to fail” from a process.
