2. Instructions of Operation for Commercial Sterility Testing
 (Click on the blue font to browse another page to view the relevant introduction)
2.1 All tools that contact the contents of the sample should be sterilized by Horizontal Laboratory Autoclave Sterilizers or Vertical Laboratory Autoclave Sterilizers.
2.2 The operation of the sample opening or after opening the lid shall be carried out in an air-cleaned environment, that is aseptic operation. The aseptic operation can be performed in a sterile laboratory (clean room) or clean benches.
2.3 If the contents are a mixture of solid and liquid, put them in Sterile Sample Blender Bags, seal the bags, pat with stomacher blenders, break the solids of the contents, and then inspect.
2.4 If the contents are multiple liquids and you want to stir evenly, use a Magnetic Stirrer Mixer with Timer and HotPlate or a 4 Heads Magnetic Stirrer Mixer with HotPlate or a Multifunctional Orbital Shaker Incubators for Laboratory, to ensure that there are no contaminated by microorganisms when are stirring.

2.5 Sensory inspection refers to observing the color and tissue morphology of the contents of the sample, and feeling their odor.
2.6 When the sample is found to be inconsistent with the requirements of commercial sterility, it is necessary to analyze the cause of the abnormality, and if necessary, special culture and detection of the bacteria to find out the cause.
2.7 A blank test is required (sample test of no microorganisms). When there is a microbe in the blank test, it indicates that there is a problem with the test operation and the result is not credible.

3. Commercial Sterility Testing Equipment
3.1 PSB Biochemical Incubators for Laboratory: The sample is subjected to microbial culture. Temperature accuracy is ±1℃. There are cooling and heating functions.
3.2 Benchtop Water Baths for Laboratory: Some samples are better for microbial culture in a constant temperature water bath. Temperature accuracy is ±1℃. It can also be used in Water Bath Orbital Shakers for Laboratory or Laboratory Refrigeration and Heating Circulating Water Bath Chiller or Water Bath of Three Independent Temperatures for Laboratory.
3.3 Laboratory Analytical Balances or Precision Balances: Accurately weigh the sample.
3.4 Benchtop pH Meter Tester: Measure the pH of the sample or culture.
3.5 Microscope: A general biological microscope. For some special analyses, an inverted biological microscope is required.
3.6 Sterilized
SCO-1 Sanitary Cans Opener: It does not destroy the double seam when open the lid of the can.
3.7 JV1 Clean Benches or Class 100 sterile laboratory (clean room): The operation is carried out in a clean environment, that is aseptic operation.
3.8 Pipettors or Micropipettes Autoclavable or Pasteur Pipettes and Disposable Droppers or glass pipette: Remove the liquid from the sample.
3.9 PYM-01 Glass Petri Dishes for Cell Culture or Glass Test Tubes with Rim Roll or Ordinary Glass Erlenmeyers and Conical Flasks: For the production of media.
3.10 Metal inoculation Loops and handles: Can pick, transfer and inoculate microorganisms during inoculation. The metal inoculation loop can be reused after sterilization.
3.11 Infrared Sterilizers for Inoculation Loops and Needles: Uses electric heating to sterilize the inoculation loop and needle. The infrared inoculation sterilizer has no open flame and is not afraid of wind, is practical testing equipment of microbiology.
3.12 If you need other laboratory equipment, please browse the “Laboratory Equipment and Instruments”, “Chemistry Laboratory Glassware”, “Food Safety Testing and Inspection Equipment” or “Can Testing Equipment Instruments”.
