Smart-Read® Monitoring System
The Smart-Read EZTest® Biological Monitoring System allows an organization to release sterile product with true biological confirmation faster and easier than ever before. This unique system uses a real biological indicator (BI) — with no added enzyme or chemical integrator — which is incubated, evaluated, and documented in one simple, automated operation. Relying only upon bacterial spore growth, the Smart-Read™ system can detect sterilization failure in as few as three to five hours, and negative results can be confirmed with an additional five hours of incubation (10 hours total).
The Smart-Read® system includes the Smart-Read EZTest® self-contained biological indicator which is specially designed for rapid evaluation in our advanced Smart-Well® incubator.
Based on familiar, proven technology, the Smart-Read® system can be implemented by any organization with minimal training and validation.
The heart of the Smart-Read® Monitoring System, the 1710 Smart-Well® is a highly sophisticated monitoring tool that is intuitive and designed with the user in mind. The Smart-Well incubator is easy-to-configure with its simple touch-screen interface and color LCD display. The incubator can evaluate up to ten Smart-Read EZTest® biological indicators independently, and contains an additional cell for a positive control unit. Each BI test result is automatically documented with a user-customizable printed report, and an alarm is sounded the moment that sterilization failure is detected.
The NEW 1710 Model Smart-Well® offers these enhanced features:
- Dual Integrated Digital Thermometers
- Improved Processor and Storage
- Larger, Color LCD Interface
- Password Protection
- Temperature Progress Meter
The Smart-Well® incubator is offered in a kit including the unit, user’s manual, report printer, and all necessary cabling.
The Smart-Read EZTest® is a familiar self-contained color change biological indicator specifically designed for rapid evaluation in the Smart-Well® incubator. It requires no special processing and can be used in place of any existing self-contained BI. The Smart-Read® BI contains spores of Geobacillus stearothermophilus and is suitable for steam sterilization processes.
