Contec's Sporicidin Brand PMG-6000 Indicator Kits are no longer available.

If you use Sporicidin® Sterilizing and Disinfecting Solution part numbers SSS-1284C or SSS-3216C, please read this entire document.

When supplies of PMG-6000 indicator kits are exhausted, use of Sporicidin® Sterilizing and Disinfecting Solution part numbers SSS-1284C and SSS-3216C as a 14 day reuse sterilizing or high level disinfectant should be discontinued. When the indicator strips that are in PMG-6000 are not used, the activated solution should be replaced with fresh solution after each use.

The indicator strips in PMG-6000 are used to confirm that the levels of active ingredients (phenol/sodium phenate and glutaraldehyde) in Sporicidin® Sterilizing and Disinfecting Solution are high enough to ensure sterilization and high level disinfection. When using Sporicidin® Sterilizing and Disinfecting Solution as a 14 day reuse cold sterilant or as a high level disinfectant, the PMG-6000 test strips should be used before soaking pre-cleaned instruments. Sporicidin® Sterilizing and Disinfecting Solution part numbers SSS-1284C and SSS- 3216C can still be used if the activated solution is discarded after each single use.
