C142896Triple-bagged and gamma-irradiated contact plates to ensure the highest level of safety
Contact Plates for isolators and clean rooms
Maximum safety for sampling dry, sanitized surfaces in critical areas ICR/ICRplus as well as Envirocheck® Contact Plates are triple-bagged and gamma-irradiated to ensure the highest level of safety when monitoring surfaces in isolators and critical clean rooms for microorganisms. They are also perfect suitable for air monitoring with our MAS-100 Air Monitoring Systems. A wide range of formulations is available to suit all needs.
Our contact plates contain either Tryptic Soy Agar (TSA), Sabouraud Dextrose Agar (SDA) or a non-animal, vegetable peptone media for minimal risk of BSE/TSE contamination. These culture media are supplemented with neutralizers of a wide range of disinfectants or β-lactam antibiotics for monitoring sanitized, dry surfaces. Neutralizers such as lecithin (L), tween 80 (T), histidine (H) and sodium thiosulfate (Th) are able to inactivate residues of disinfectants, a wide range of which are used the word over for disinfection. Plates supplemented with cephalosporinase (cephase) or penicillinase (penase) are able to inactivate a wide spectrum of β-lactam antibiotics.
The ICRplus Contact Plates for monitoring surfaces in isolators and clean rooms provide the additional benefit of lockable lids: Fixation in the CLOSED position enables safe transportation and aerobic incubation, while fixation in the VENT position allows quick gas exchange and is suitable for anaerobic and microaerophilic incubation.
Secure and reliable:
Data matrix barcode on each plate: Paperless and secure identification of individual plates
Transparent, H2O2-impermeable triple-sleeve packaging: Safe transportation in clean rooms and isolators
CLOSED and VENT closure options of ICRplus Contact Plates: For safe transportation and variation of incubation conditions
Room temperature stability: Storable at site of use
Long shelf life: Fewer incoming goods controls
Sabouraud Dextrose Agar in pink plates: TSA and SDA plates easily distinguishable
Many different formulations for monitoring sanitized, dry surfaces
Supplemented with neutralizers of a wide range of disinfectants and β-lactam antibiotics
