					MAIL-IN TESTING (OR THIRD PARTY TESTING)

ATS, Inc. offers 11 programs for testing your sterilizer using biological spore testing – the most
important step in obtaining sterility assurance. We offer the widest variety of program choices
in the industry. After serving thousands of clients nationwide since we started in 1986, we
realized the need for such a diversity of testing programs. We will also customize a program to
fit your needs (For example: 6-month testing for seasonal businesses, or test results sent to a
different address, emailed or faxed, and so on). To compare program choices side by side,
see the chart below.

NOTE: If you find a cheaper service, we will honor their price, allowing you to still benefit with
using our enhanced sterilizer spore testing programs. Choose outstanding quality and
experience with Autoclave Testing Service, Inc.



Standard Program:         Five testing frequencies to choose from!
The Standard Program testing is our most comprehensive program and also the most popular.
This program offers a fresh spore test sent to your office each week, month, quarter, etc. as a
timely reminder. This method of sterilizer testing is far superior to the test kits that are sent in
bulk which are cheaper, but are often left in some corner “out-of-sight, out-of-mind”. Testing in
a timely manner will avoid fines from your local health department (depending on the type of
industry). Your original, personally signed test report is mailed upon completion. See complete
list of features which include Return Postage and Self-Addressed Forms and Envelopes by
clicking onto “Standard Program” above. To review and compare all program choices side-by-
side, see our Services page.




Economy-Plus Testing Program: Three testing frequencies to choose from!
The Economy-Plus Programs offer pre-dated tests and self-addressed forms with return
postage prepaid. The test kit box is sent annually. The pre-dated tests help to keep you on
schedule and if you do fall behind in testing, you will receive a phone call from our customer
service staff to remind you. Testing in a timely manner will avoid fines from your local health
department (depending on the type of industry). Your original, personally signed test result is
mailed upon completion. See complete list of features which include Return Postage and Self-
Addressed Forms by clicking above “Economy-Plus Program.” To compare all program
choices side-by-side, see our Services page.



Economy Program: Three testing frequencies to choose from!
The Economy Program is our lowest-priced program providing the basic sterilizer spore testing
service with self-addressed forms and envelopes. The test kits are sent annually. If you fall
behind in testing, you will receive a phone call from our customer service staff to remind your
facility to test on schedule. Testing in a timely manner will avoid fines from your local health
department (depending on the type of industry). Your original, personally signed test report is
mailed upon completion. This cost-effective third-party testing program meets all guidelines
and requirements. To review or compare all programs side-by-side, see our Services page.
In-Office Biological Testing:
The new addition to our line of spore testing is SterileCheck™, a self-contained biological
indicator (BI) ampoule for steam sterilization. This cost-effective BI test is comparable to the 3M
Attest and other similar products. The ampoules are packaged 25 per box and require a small
tabletop incubator which can be purchased separately. Note: They will also fit your existing
incubator (all brands). This is the most cost-effective method to test your sterilizer using
biological indicators but requires your office staff to process the testing and do their own
documenting and record keeping. ATS, Inc. will assist you in setting up this system of testing.
