Understand the difference of Biological Indicators by Fluorescence and pH for sterilizations through Formaldehyde

Hygia bio

Biosecurity in medical-hospital environments is an essential pillar to the prevention of infections related to healthcare assistance. One of the most efficient tools in this context are the biological indicators, devices that validate the efficacy of sterilization processes. Especially when it comes to powerful sterilizing agents like formaldehyde, the precision and reliability in the sterilization verification are crucial. The sterilization by formaldehyde is a wide method utilized in diverse environments, such as hospitals, oral clinics and laboratories.

Hygia Bio, pioneer in biosecurity solutions, offers notable innovations with its biological indicators by fluorescence and pH specific for formaldehyde, ensuring safer and more protected healthcare environments. 

How do the biological indicators by fluorescence work in sterilization through formaldehyde?

The biological indicators by fluorescence utilize the response of specific microorganisms that, when exposed to formaldehyde, generate a fluorescence reaction under adequate sterilization conditions. This type of indicator is particularly useful to quickly and efficiently validate sterilizations, because the fluorescent response can be quickly observed after the exposure of the sterilizing agent. 

Biological indicators by fluorescence are valuable tools to ensure the safety and efficiency of sterilization by formaldehyde. Through quick failure detection and high reliability, these indicators contribute to the protection of patients, healthcare professionals and to the compliance of sanitary norms. 

Advantages of biological indicators by fluorescence in sterilizations through formaldehyde

  • Fast Results: Capability of offering almost immediate feedback regarding the sterilization efficacy, with response time of up to 2 hours. 
  • High Sensibility: Detects the formaldehyde’s action with precision, even under low concentrations.
  • Operational Simplicity: Do not require complex equipment to fluorescence reading, making the process more accessible and practical.

Biological indicators by pH in sterilizations through Formaldehyde: Chemical Precision

Differently from indicators by fluorescence, the biological indicators by pH detect the exposure of formaldehyde through the change of color that occurs due to the pH alteration. The color change of the indicator is a visual sign that the sterilization process has reached the needed conditions to be considered effective. This type of indicator is valued for its simplicity and easy results interpretation. The results of this product can be visualized in up to 24 hours. 

The utilization of this reader contain many advantages, such as:

  • Easy interpretation: The color change is a visual and intuitive indicative of sterilization success.
  • Versatility: Can be used in a wide variety of environments and sterilized (with formaldehyde) equipment.
  • Cost-Benefit: Offer an economic solution without compromising the quality or reliability of the evaluation.
