Fast Forward

The Celerity 20 HP Biological Indicator is a rapid-read, single-use biological indicator designed to monitor vaporized hydrogen peroxide sterilization processes, providing a final read within 20 minutes of incubation. The biological indicator is self-contained, reducing the risk of contamination and consequent false positives. Each biological indicator (BI) vial is inoculated with Geobacillus stearothermophilus bacterial spores and contains a defined media within the vial cap. The vial cap label features a process indicator for hydrogen peroxide.

How the Celerity 20 HP Biological Indicator Works

After a sterilization cycle, the process indicator on the vial cap will provide immediate confirmation of processing. The BI is activated using a twist and flick motion and does not require a separate activator. Upon activation, the BI is incubated using the Celerity™ HP Incubator. A negative response provided by the incubator, within 20 minutes, indicates an acceptable sterilization process.

Why the Celerity 20 HP Biological Indicator?

Speed and Ease of Use

The Celerity 20 HP Biological Indicator provides rapid results within 20 minutes so you can have confidence when releasing loads.

Increased Productivity

The Celerity 20 HP BI provides expedited and confident load release for sets reprocessed in a V-PRO or STERRAD® Sterilizer*1. The BI allows you to reprocess and release up to 50 lbs. of devices in less than 50 minutes when used in the Non Lumen Cycle of the V-PRO maX or maX 2 Sterilizers.
