In-Office Spore Testing (Biological Monitoring) Summary: • Sterilizer monitoring requires the use of BOTH an unprocessed Control vial and a processed Test vial. • Both the Control and Test vial culture medium start out purple in color. • The Test vial is processed along with a load in a sterilization cycle, whereas, the Control vial is not processed. • Before placing both vials into an appropriate pre-set temperature incubator, both vials must be activated by crushing the sides. • Upon full incubation, the processed Test vial should remain purple (indicating no spore growth) and the unprocessed Control vial should turn yellow (showing spore growth).
