2017 ISO 11138 Revision Review and Compliance Statement

Published in March 2017, the ISO 11138 documents have undergone an update. While most of the changes made to the documents relate to verbiage and reformatting, there were several changes which required review specific to how they relate to Crosstex’ Biological Indicators (BIs) and manufacturing processes. Below is a summary of the significant changes and the impact they have or potentially have related to our biological based products.

In some cases, the products offered by NAMSA will be transitioned to the equivalent configuration that Crosstex has been offering. For these products, the product codes will change and a product comparison document has been developed to aid in clearly outlining the new product code, the similarities and any differences which may exist between the NAMSA product and the equivalent Crosstex replacement.  Please see below product comparisons.

Please note if there is no comparison for a product code/configuration, it is because the code and configuration will remain the same when transferred to Crosstex. The only change will be the brand changing from NAMSA to Crosstex.
