Example text

For all bioburden levels below 1,000 cfu per allograft product, this means that for the reference microbial resistance distribution given in Table B24 of ISO 11137:1995 for medical devices, a more conservative approach to the calculation of a verification dose is taken. Hence, this modification allows the use of greater verification doses than would be allowed using the formula given in either method 1 of ISO 11137 or in ISO/TR 13409:1996. The result is that there are fewer unexpected and unwarranted failures relative to verification doses experiments carried out using the method in ISO/TR 13409:1996.

4. Qualification of tissue allografts for sterilisation Typical bioburden distribution (it is assumed that the standard distribution of resistances, see Annex A, is valid). Stage Stage 1 Production batch size Value 40 Comments 5 x 5 cm amnion samples. Test sample size for bioburden determination 10 Test sample size for the verification dose experiment 10 Verification dose required for SAL 10-1 (= 1/10). 20 10 for bioburden; 10 for verification dose experiment. Stage 2 Obtain samples Stage 3 SIP 1 The whole allograft product is used.

The irradiated SIPs, of all types of tissue allografts, are transferred to a growth medium and incubated for at least 14 days at an appropriated temperatures. Positive and negative sterility tests results should be registered. For bone and skin allografts, an additional test is recommended to detect anaerobic bacteria. (e) Interpretation of results For a verification dose experiment performed with up to 30 allograft products or SIPs, statistical verification is accepted if there is no more than one positive test of sterility observed.
