We used Geobacillus stearothermophilus in media containing bromocresol 
purple.  I believe the trade name is "Raven ProSpore Self-Contained 
Biological Indicator" from Raven labs.

I am looking for a recommendation for simple Biological Indicators to 
verify our autoclave sterilization effectiveness.
There are several vial styles to choose from.  I don't want to waste 
money on a poor product.

Thank you in advance!
