Cherwell Laboratories secures Raven biological indicators distributorship

Existing products complemented by comprehensive range for the validation of sterilisation processes

The comprehensive range includes a variety of biological indicators

Cherwell Laboratories has taken over the UK distributorship for the Raven range of biological indicators, used for the validation of sterilisation processes, following the decision of M-Tech Diagnostics owners, Martin and Alison London to retire.

The comprehensive range includes a variety of biological indicators, such as spore strips and suspensions for use with conventional culture media, self-contained biological indicators and industrial use biological indicators. They are available populated by several different species of spores for applications including steam, dry heat, hydrogen peroxide vapour, Ethelyne Oxide (EO), formaldehyde, chlorine dioxide (ClO2) and gamma irradiation.

With the support of Mesa Laboratories, the manufacturer of the Raven range, Cherwell Laboratories and M-Tech Diagnostics have worked together closely to ensure minimal disruption to supply.

The addition of biological indicators to the Cherwell product range, which includes Redipor prepared culture media for sterility testing, bioburden and biological indicator incubation, plus chemical indicators and DataTrace data loggers, means the company can now offer a fully integrated range of products for the validation of sterilisation processes.
