AAHA is pleased to announce that Mesa Labs is now part of the AAHA Member Values Program.  

Veterinary practitioners understand the importance of sterilization and infection control to ensure the safety of their team members and patients. Many veterinary facilities use steam or ethylene oxide sterilization processes to disinfect their instruments. Now, Mesa Labs provides a cost-effective way to verify the effectiveness of your sterilization process using mail-in spore testing services.

Biological indicators, commonly referred to as spore tests, are the only definitive way to determine that microbial life has been destroyed. At a minimum, spore tests should be processed in a sterilization cycle monthly.  If testing shows a positive result, the sterilizer should be retested and the unit in question should not be used until the cause of the failure has been determined and corrected.

Reduce the risk of cross-contamination and other sterilization issues in your practice—and protect your patients and staff—with regular autoclave monitoring. To learn more about spore testing and how you can save 10% on all services from Mesa Labs, visit aaha.org/mvp and select “Autoclave Spore Testing.”
