Releasat is a biological indicator culturing kit containing MesaStrip paper strip biological indicators and culture tubes of specially formulated soybean casein digest culture medium containing a color indicator which turns a dramatic yellow when spores grow. Releasat culture kits are available for monitoring chlorine dioxide, ethylene oxide and dry heat
The color indicator provides visual results within 48 hours (chlorine dioxide) or 72 hours (EO / DRY) as opposed to the standard seven days. Releasat medium is used to culture the MesaStrip in place of “generic” soybean casein digest medium and provides a more rapid read-out. Each lot of Releasat culture tubes are quality control tested with appropriate MesaStrips.
