On-Demand Webinar: Biological Indicator Incubation and Reduced Incubation Time

Watch our 45-minute webinar where we cover biological indicator incubation and reduced incubation time. 

In this 45-minute webinar you will learn who the new ISO standard affects, how it applies to you, and how it compares to the previous method. We will also review reduced incubation times (RIT), the recommendations for delayed cultivation, and steps to confirm a positive BI result.

In this webinar, you can expect to: 

  • Learn about the new ISO 11138-8 for Reduced Incubation Time (RIT) 
  • Explore what to do when you get an unexpected biological indicator result 
  • Receive guidance for Biological Indicator Cultivation
