Culture Service Program

Propper Manufacturing Company Inc.’s Culture Service Program, a biological monitoring service, provides a reliable and secure solution for clinical and non-clinical settings to ensure the safety of patients and staff. Our testing method is based on highly resistant dual-species bacterial spores of Geobacillus stearothermophilus and Bacillus atrophaeus, which are capable of surviving steam, ethylene oxide, and dry heat sterilization cycles.

Our process is straightforward and hassle-free. After completing your sterilization cycle, simply place the provided glassine test strips in the business reply return envelope and fill out the Sterilization Report Form on the envelope. You can expect to receive your mail-in spore test results within 48 hours of the culturing period, which will be emailed to you and accessible from our secure website.

At Propper Manufacturing Company Inc., we understand the importance of timely test results. Therefore, we have a notification process in place to inform you immediately of your results, regardless of the outcome. If the test result is positive, we will contact you directly with recommendations on how to proceed. You can view your records on our secure and confidential website database, print them, or have them emailed again for your convenience.

Important Update for 2024: Our Duo-Spore® Biological Indicators will now feature white translucent glassine paper instead of blue. This change is thoroughly tested and doesn’t affect functionality. The transition will happen in the coming months and will have no impact on your processes, delivery, or storage conditions.
