For Rapid, Super Rapid Biological Indicators & Hygiene Monitoring Systems 

Bionova® IC10/20FRLCD is an automatic system for incubation and readout of Rapid and Super Rapid Biological Indicators and for reading Hygiene Monitoring Systems. Bionova® Incubators with the use of the biological indicators and higly absorbent pen system offer a revolutionary approach for the control of the decontamination process in the Healthcare sector. The system provides results within 15- 30 minutes, depending on the use of Hygiene Monitoring System pens or the Rapid, Super Rapid or Ultra Rapid BI’s. The unit prints a receipt of each and every test with clear “negative” or “positive” results. Moreover, the system provides full traceability compliant with HTM01-01 2016 via its software and communicates directly with a PC for full data storage (optional wifi connection is also available).



  • Touchscreen: Bionova® IC10/20FRLCD has a 3,5’’ LCD touchscreen.
  • Optimization of incubation times: Bionova® IC10/20FRLCD allows to simultaneously incubate indicators with different incubation times. Furthermore, remaining incubation time of each position is displayed on the screen.
  •  Automatic results reader: Bionova® IC10/20FRLCD automatically reads the results of the incubation, displaying indicating icons corresponding to each BI position when the final result is obtained.
  • Recording of results: Bionova® IC10/20FRLCD automatically records the last 208 reading results. Remote viewing on the computer through the Embedded Web Server
  • Remote access: Remote display of each reading status in PC and Smartphones. Ethernet connection. Allows the connection of multiple incubators to a unique traceability software regardless of where they are.

For Hygiene Monitoring System

Autoredear Incubator MiniPro

Bionova® MiniPro is designed for the measurement of the residual protein in the process of washing and disinfecting equipment and instruments and thus reducing the risk of microbiological contamination. The MiniPro allows the incubation and quantitative readout of the pen system for the detection of proteins and surface allergens.

Bionova® has developed PRO1Micro, a highly absorbent pen system for the detection and quantification of surface proteins and allergens. It allows to carry out a quantitative measurement of the microgram of protein in the sample using the Bionova® MiniPro incubator. This is a revolutionary approach for the detection and quantification of surface proteins as the system provides accurate indication of the level of contamination in hospital settings. The use of this system provides full quantitative results with actual result of the Protein level on the instrument in microgram.

The results are as accurate as 0.3 microgram and the results are provided within 15 min with the MiniPro. The system provides full traceability compliant with HTM01-01 2016 via its software. It is connected directly to a PC through USB for full data storage. Also, the results are printed on a receipt with clear “negative” or “positive” results with ug result displayed. In addition, it has the option for the reprint of the last 3 results and for the verification of the remaining incubation time. Both, the unit and its software are fully compliant with HTM01-01 2016.


  • 3 positions (2.5 cm depth, 1.3 cm diameter) for incubation and transmittance readout of hygiene indicators.
  • USB connection for recording results on PC using a Readout and
  • Traceability software.
  • It allows to incubate and read 3 indicators simultaneously.
  • Thermal Printer results.
  • Sound alarm for indication of events.
  • Firmware update by the user

Protein Tests

For Rapid and Super Rapid Biological Indicators

Bionova® MiniBio incubator allows easy and rapid detection of positive and negative Biological Indicators. A positive result can also be evidenced by culture medium color change to yellow, read the instructions for use of each indicator for more information. The choice to perform or not the extended incubation to confirm by color change depends on the internal protocols of each laboratory or hospital. The incubator allows incubation time programs selection independently for each one of three positions. Bionova® MiniBio incubator not only allows results detection but also provides a printed ticket to record them. In addition, the auto-reader can be connected to computers by USB. This allows linking the results with the Bionova® Traceability Software for Automatic Reading and Traceability of Rapid, Super Rapid and Ultra Rapid Biological Indicators and Hygiene Monitoring System.
