Important Note: If you are using a dry heat sterilizer, please place your spore strip inside a sterilization pouch before running the sterilization cycle. This will prevent the glassine envelope covering the spore strip from drying and cracking. For dry heat sterilization pouch product suggestions, please contact the SMS office at 614-292-6737.
