VERIFY® Assert Self-Contained Biological Indicator

  • Provides a final read within 40 minutes of incubation
  • For routine monitoring, qualification
  • Easy to use and activate – no separate activator is required



Waiting is the worst

The VERIFY Assert Self-Contained Biological Indicator (SCBI) is a rapid read single-use biological indicator used for monitoring steam sterilization processes, providing a final read within 40 minutes of incubation. The BI is self-contained, reducing the risk of contamination and consequent false positives. Each SCBI vial is inoculated with Geobacillus stearothermophilus bacterial spores and contains a defined medium within the vial cap. The vial cap label contains a process indicator for steam.

How the VERIFY Assert SCBI Works

After a steam sterilization cycle, the process indicator on the vial cap will provide immediate proof of processing. The SCBI is activated using a twist and flick motion and does not require a separate activator. Upon activation, the SCBI is incubated using the VERIFY Incubator for Assert SCBIs. A negative response provided by the incubator indicates conditions for sterilization were met.

Why the VERIFY Assert SCBI?

Speed and Ease of Use

The VERIFY Assert SCBI provides rapid results within 40 minutes so that you can have peace of mind when releasing loads.

Safety and Compliance

The VERIFY Assert SCBI was tested per methods described in ANSI/AAMI/ISO 11138:2006, while the process indicator located on the cap meets the Type 1 chemical indicator requirements of ANSI/AAMI/ISO 11140-1:2014.
