The Mesa Labs biological indicator incubator is designed for convenient and effective incubation of self-contained biological indicators, consisting of a capped thermoplastic culturing vial containing a glass media ampule and a carrier inoculated with bacterial spores. Upon removal from the sterilizer, the indicator is activated by flexing the plastic culturing vial to crush the inner glass ampoule which allows the growth medium to contact the spore carrier. The activated indicator is then incubated for a specified length of time and observed for color change of the growth medium. If the medium turns yellow during incubation, the test is positive indicating growth and inadequate sterilization.
