Salesworth Synergies LLP. is an Agency house based in Bangalore, India dealing with pharmaceutical products for the healthcare industry. We are pleased to bring you the state-of-the-art Biological Indicators from Mesa Labs, Bozeman Manufacturing Facility, USA (previously known as SGM Biotech, USA). Their Biological Indicators (BIs) are used worldwide by medical and industrial facilities to monitor steam, ethylene oxide gas, dry heat and radiation sterilization processes and comply with ISO 9001, USP, ISO 11138, EN 866, AAMI and ANSI guidelines. These Biological Indicators fulfil all the criteria outlined in all Pharmacopoeias as well as that of the USFDA, MCA, TGA and WHO.


SGM Strip / Mesa Strip is a
conventional Biological Indicator for
monitoring steam, ethylene oxide,
dry heat and radiation industrial
sterilization processes. It contains
bacterial spores on a paper
carrier sealed within a convenient
peel-open glassine envelope.
After the sterilization process, the BI is aseptically placed in soybean
casein digest medium and incubated at the appropriate temperature for 7 days.

EZTest is a self-contained Biological
Indicator for monitoring steam or
ethylene oxide sterilization. EZTest
contains bacterial spores on a paper
carrier packaged within a small,
thermoplastic culture tube. Inside the
thermoplastic culture tube is a sealed
glass ampoule of specially
formulated soybean casein digest
culture medium containing a color
indicator that turns a dramatic yellow when spores grow. EZTest is easy-to-use and produces visual results within 48 hours without laboratory transfers.
MagnaAmp is a self-contained
Biological Indicator ampoule for
monitoring steam sterilization of
liquids in ampoules, large containers
or washer sterilizers. A small 1 mL
snap-top constricted neck glass
ampoule contains spores of
Geobacillus stearothermophilus
suspended in a specially formulated
culture medium that turns a dramatic
yellow when the spores grow. The
ampoule is so designed to sink to the
bottom of large containers for the
most effective validation of the
sterilization cycle. MagnaAmp
provides easy visual confirmation of
sterilization within 48 hours without
the need for difficult and timeconsuming
laboratory work.

SterilAmp II is a compact, selfcontained
Biological Indicator in a
small sealed glass tube (0.3 mL) for
monitoring industrial steam
sterilization of liquids that precisely
responds to the process F° . It turns a o
dramatic yellow when spores grow
at the recommended incubation
temperature.

SterilAmp II 5230 is also a compact,
self-contained Biological Indicator in
a small sealed glass tube (0.3 mL)
for monitoring low temperature
steam sterilization processes using
Bacillus subtilis “5230” as the spore
species. The D-values are given for
o temperatures as low as 110°C in the
CoA. It turns a dramatic yellow when
spores grow at the recommended
incubation temperature.
DriAmp is a Biological Indicator
ideally used for high temperature
applications where normal spore
strip indicators cannot be used. The
spores are inoculated on silica
powder placed in a snap-top
constricted neck ampoule. It comes
with a Releasat culture medium
which has been formulated to
produce results in just 72 hours.

SGM Spore Suspension is a
calibrated suspension of bacterial
spores appropriate for preparing
custom Biological Indicators for
monitoring steam, ethylene oxide,
dry heat and radiation industrial
sterilization processes. Each vial
contains 10 mL of a known
concentration of spores suspended
in 40% ethanol or aqueous solution.
The concentrations are specified per
0.1 mL.

ApexDisc is a Biological Indicator for
Hydrogen Peroxide Vapor sterilizations
for isolators, decontaminators, etc.
where the bacterial spores are
inoculated on a stainless steel disc.
This is packaged in a peel open
Tyvek® / Tyvek® envelope.
 
SGM Biotech/Mesa Labs, USA
also offers Custom Biological
Indicators designed to suit the
specific needs of a customer.
SGM Biotech can work with the
customer to create a suitable
Biological Indicator as per the
customer's requirements.
