Rubber Fab's Biological Indicator Gasket enables the use of a self-contained biological indicator in sanitary process lines. This unique Smart Gasket permits either top loading or inline positioning of an EZTest self-contained biological indicator and/or a temperature probe.
The great advantage of a self-contained biological indicator over the traditional spore strip in glassine is the time saved when confirming spore kill. Results are easily obtained in only 24 hours (versus the five to seven days required with a spore strip) and without problematic laboratory transfer.
You can feel secure knowing that the biological indicator will not be lost downstream in the process. The fail-safe Rubber Fab Smart Gasket holds the indicator in place for easy retrieval. Available for ¾", 1", 1½", and 2" sanitary tri-clamp process lines.
