Process Challenge Devices
A Process Challenge Device (PCD) is the surrogate of product used for microbiological monitoring of both, validation and routine sterilization cycles. It consists of a biological indicator within a specific configuration such as syringes, tubing, etc., that poses an increased resistance to represent a stringent challenge to the sterilization process.
NLI produces different configurations of PCDs designed with consideration to the various sterilization parameters. Their composition is based on different resistance levels to adapt to different cycle specifications.
