What are Enzyme Indicators?
ENZYME INDICATORS – THE FULL STORY
The conventional 7 day wait for Biological Indicator (BI) decontamination results is over. Enzyme Indicators are an alternative way to measure and validate decontamination performance instantly.
Enzyme Indicators (EI’s) are an industry-changing advance in measuring decontamination performance. We believe they will change the world. No longer will the pharmaceutical industry suffer financial losses, wasted man hours and the burden of high risks. EI’s offer a fast, cost effective, accurate and risk-free alternative.
So here are the technical details about this new science, where it comes from and how it works…
tAK is a remarkably stable enzyme that has a high tolerance to processes that would quickly inactivate most other proteins such as high temperature and oxidising agents. The enzyme has a predictable inactivation profile which can be measured across a wide dynamic range. These characteristics make tAK ideal as a surrogate marker for monitoring decontamination processes.
