Antimicrobial Effectiveness Evaluation
of Isocide vs. Stainless SteelUndesirable
bioburdens can cause contamination on equipment and facilities used by
laboratory professionals, where it is critical for them to keep
everything clean and free from any health hazard. The bioburdens are
present on many surfaces and it is hard to control their numbers
Some laboratory and cleanroom products are equipped with
organism growth control mechanisms. One such mechanism is Isocide™
Two tests, based on JIS and ASTM standards, were performed to
evaluate antimicrobial effectiveness of this powder coating. Stainless
steel plate was used for this test as comparison. The test results
showed that bacteria, yeast and mold that came into contact with
Isocide™ coated surfaces were inhibited and effectively
Air Cleanliness Test on CO2
IncubatorOne of the most critical aspects
within an aseptic manufacturing facility is the amount of viable
microorganism and non-viable particulates within a controlled area. Good
environment control to ensure contaminant-free chamber is also
important to support the cell growth. To control the chamber air
cleanliness, Esco CO2 incubators are equipped with SteriSafe™ ULPA
The SteriSafe™ system utilizes a fan to re-circulate air inside
the incubator through an ULPA filter to capture the airborne
contaminants. The objective of this system is to achieve biosafety
cabinet comparable cleanliness level of at least ISO Class 5 inside the
incubator chamber, which was investigated on this study.
A New Microbiological
Cross Contamination Test on CelCulture® CO2
IncubatorCross contamination is the term
used to describe bacterial transfer from source into high risk. Cross
contamination occurs when one object becomes contaminated by either
direct or indirect contact with another object which is already
CO2 incubators have become acceptable, reliable equipment given
the growth in cell culture research and the ability of incubators to
grow cells in vitro. But, on the flip side of this benefit, is the
constant threat of contamination to the cell culture environment.
The aim of this study was to evaluate cross contamination at
inner chamber of CO2 incubator. In this study, the test was performed
with both methods adopted from NSF/ANSI 49:2008 using nebulizer and
another test method performed using contaminated plates.
