The test materials and the instructions will be sent to you after we have received your submission form. Samples can be collected up to the expiration date of the test kit, as long as the kit is stored according to the specifications in the accompanying documents.
For monitoring the surface disinfection you will be provided with contact plates. The surfaces to be sampled must be cleaned and disinfected and must be well dried before sampling. The contact plates, which need to be labelled on the bottom, must be returned to the laboratory within 24 hours together with the filled-in submission form.
The bioindicators necessary for evaluating the proper functioning of the sterilisers can be applied right in the device together with the regular sterilisation material. After testing, these bioindicators have to be sent directly to the laboratory together with the filled-in submission form.
For testing the disinfection of endoscopes, two contact plates and two rinse samples are necessary for each endoscope. It is required to return the collected samples to the laboratory within 24 hours as described in the instructions.
