Fast Forward

The Celerity 20 HP Challenge Pack provides confidence for initial use of your V-PRO Low Temperature Sterilization Systems after installation. With the Celerity 20 HP Challenge Pack, only three consecutive cycles (most challenging) need to be run in your V-PRO Sterilizer to qualify the sterilizer for use. This means your V-PRO Sterilizer can be qualified and put into use in under three hours.

How the Celerity 20 HP Challenge Pack Works

Each Celerity 20 HP Challenge Pack includes the fast read Celerity 20 HP Biological Indicator, a chemical indicator strip and a blue polyurethane foam sheet.

The self-contained BI reduces the risk of contamination and consequent false positives. Each BI vial is inoculated with Geobacillus stearothermophilus bacterial spores and contains a defined media within the vial cap. The vial cap label contains a process indicator for hydrogen peroxide which provides immediate confirmation of processing. Upon activation, the BI is incubated using the Celerity™ HP Incubator. A negative response provided by the incubator within 20 minutes indicates that the BI went through an acceptable sterilization process.

The chemical indicator strip is a Type 1 Process Indicator as defined in ANSI/AAMI/ISO 11140-1. This indicator provides immediate proof of processing. A vivid color change from magenta to yellow indicates exposure to a hydrogen peroxide sterilization cycle occurred.

During sterilization, the sterilizer must remove air from the challenge pack, expose the pack to a sufficient quantity of hydrogen peroxide to overcome the absorption of hydrogen peroxide by the polyurethane foam sheet, and kill the bacterial spores within the self-contained biological indicator. The Celerity 20 HP Challenge Pack provides a challenge to sterilization equivalent to or greater than that achieved by the worst case sterilization load.
