 Your Third Party Sterilizer Monitoring Assurance Provider

Coastal BioTech Services, Inc. offers the medical, dental, and commercial community a quality control program for sterilizer systems. Coastal BioTech Services, Inc. third party sterilizer monitoring assurance programs consist of business reply envelopes containing chromatography paper impregnated with bacterial spores and may be used to monitor the efficacy of steam, chemical vapor, dry heat, and gas-EtO sterilization processes. Our tests are dual purpose and can be used to monitor any of the four types of sterilizers.

Our strip populations contain both Bacillus sterothermophilus and Bacillus subtilis var Niger. A microbiological monitor is the only effective way to ensure that sterilization has been achieved. Although autoclave tape and bag markers indicate exposure to sterilization and that the proper temperature has been achieved, they do not verify that sterilization has been successful. Studies of the adequacy of medical, dental and commercial office sterilization have been variable, ranging from four to ten percent failure in monitored sterilization attempts. It has been our observation that a majority of sterilization failures have been due to human error and not that of equipment failure.

We thank you for your visit to Coastal BioTech Services, Inc.
