If you perform sterility testing in a non-isolator situation, how do you
disinfect the septum after removal of the flip off cap? Do you use an
alcohol wipe?, or spray sterile alcohol on a sterile wiper, immerse the
vial into a disinfectant, use a sporicide? Other methods?

Thanks for your responses,
