What is the purpose of making a positive control of a given BI

We assure the correct performance of our BIs for a specified period of time (2 years normally) if properly handled and stored as our specifications indicates.

Due to random factors there might be unexpected false negative results. For this reason AAMI ST79 recommends always using a BI as a positive control (non-exposed to sterilization process) from the same lot number as the one being used for testing.
