Culture Service Program

Propper Manufacturing Company Inc.’s biological monitoring service offers our diverse clinical and non-clinical clientele the security of knowing their patients and staff are safe. Our highly resistant dual-species bacterial spores of Geobacillus stearothermophilus (highly resistant to moist heat) and Bacillus atrophaeus (highly resistant to ethylene oxide gas and dry heat) provide the most reliable testing method; to confirm an effective steam, ethylene oxide, and dry heat sterilization cycle.

Propper makes the process simple. After completing your sterilization cycle, place the provided glassine test strips in the business reply return envelope. Please fill out the Sterilization Report Form on the envelope. Your mail-in spore test results will be available at the end of the 48-hour culturing period. Our lab will email the results, which are also accessible from our secure website.

Since Propper Manufacturing Company Inc. understands the importance of receiving your tests quickly. Our notification process will inform you immediately of your results regardless of the outcome. A positive test result will trigger a phone call directly with your test result and recommendations on how to proceed. You will receive a link to view your records on our secure and confidential website database, additionally to having the option to print or have your test results emailed again.
