Established by Mesa, the award evolved from the acknowledgment that compliance should be celebrated and commended.  They wanted to recognize companies that have demonstrated an overall commitment to infection control by demonstrating high levels of weekly, biological sterilization monitoring compliance . Commitment to infection control helps assure that sterilization equipment is functioning properly, which is a critical measure in keeping patients and professionals safe.
