ATS Inc. is one of the first companies to provide sterilization monitoring!

Autoclave Testing Service, Inc. has become a widely recognized industry leader in sterility assurance products. Our laboratory provides comprehensive testing using biological indicators that challenge your sterilization system, assuring you that it is sterilizing.  We provide the most professional, cost effective sterilizer monitoring service available in the industry.  We strive to have our clients compliant with their state regulations and reduce their risk of liability with detailed sterilizer test reports.  We offer competitive pricing and will customize a program to fit your needs.  Our test kit is unique to the industry as it provides an immediate verification of sterilization, while the biological spore test is mailed to our laboratory for processing.  In the event of a test failure, you will be immediately notified, and a free re-test will be issued.   

Biological spore testing is the only accepted method of verifying sterilization has taken place, through the death of the dual spores.  The spore strip test is placed in the autoclave/sterilizer during a normal sterilization cycle.  The spore strips are then returned to our laboratory for culturing. The documented result of the spore test is a valid proof of sterilization.  To choose a program that fits your needs, see Selecting A Program or call today for our competitive rates and program choices, a free trial spore test kit, or our full color brochure.

Biological indicator (or spore test) monitoring of sterilizers is now mandated in 39 states.  The CDC (The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for Disease) recommends “monitor sterilizers at least weekly by using a biological indicator”.  AAMI standards of 2006 recommends “weekly, preferably daily monitoring…containing a biological indicator.”

OUR SPORE TESTING PROGRAMS INCLUDE MANY FEATURES:

FAST TURN AROUND TIME!  24-hour results for steam sterilization, 72-hour results for chemical vapor, and 7-day results for all other types of sterilization including dry heat and Ethylene Oxide sterilization.  We use dual spores that meet all industry standards.  The paper strips are inoculated with Geobacillus stearothermophilus and Bacillus atrophaeus spores and are certified and FDA approved.

Immediate and confidential notification of failed test results.  Most programs provide FREE re-tests to confirm an adverse test result.  We have knowledgeable technicians on staff to assist in proper procedure following a failed test.

Each biological spore test packet also includes a Class 5 Steam Integrator (a multi-parameter chemical indicator) which changes color after sufficient exposure to the three critical parameters for sterilization (steam, time and temperature).  This provides immediate results allowing you to release your sterilized load, while the biological indicator is being processed at our laboratory.  Control spore tests with proof of positive growth are documented.  

Pre-paid return postage, Filing Storage Portfolio and Autoclave Log Record Books are included with most of our programs.

Wide range of program choices. Tests are sent out weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, etc, as a timely reminder (see Standard Programs).  Our cost effective economy programs are sent annually, with results sent upon completion (see Economy Plus Program or Economy Programs).

We also offer very competitive pricing on In-Office Testing.  The self-contained biological indicators compares to 3M Attest ®, and others.

A full color custom 8.5” X 11” display certificate suitable for framing comes with each annual subscription.  This informs your clients that your office is concerned for its patients and maintains a high standard of protection against the spread of communicable diseases.
