Remedy Staffing is hiring for a Lab Technician for a growing medical supply manufacturer in Rush NY!

Job Duties: 

The purpose of the Culture lab is to verify that the customers sterilizers are working accordingly through the process of sterilizing a spore strip that is comprised of two different type of bacterial spores.

Spore strips are comprised of two bacterial spores:

  •  Geobacillus stearothermophilus (ATTC 7953): Is used to monitor both Steam and Chemical Vapor sterilization modalities. These bacterial spores are incubated at 55-60oC.
  • Bacillus atrophaeus (ATTC 9372): Is used to monitor both Dry Heat and EO (Ethylene Oxide) sterilization modalities. These bacterial spores are incubated at 30-39oC.

The strips are transferred into a media tube that that contains a media that acts as a visual indicator. The media contains bromocresol purple which acts as a pH indicator, that changes color depending upon the change in pH due to bacterial growth. If there is bacterial growth within the media tube, the media will change from a purple color to a bright yellow color to signal the presence of bacteria.

Daily:

  • • Envelopes from customers are received in through mail.
  • • Samples are sorted and date ordered depending upon the type of sterilization method and date the samples were processed by the customer.
  • • The envelopes are stickered with an identification number for traceability.
  • • The control samples and test samples are both transferred into a media tube, and then incubated depending upon the method of sterilization used.
  • • Following the incubation time (1-7 days) the samples are examined for any samples that either show a color change or some bacterial growth within the tube.
  • • Any samples that are shown to not prove a complete lethality to all the bacterial spores are passed on to the customer service team to contact the customer.
