Celerity 10 Steam Chemical Indicator

Celerity 10 STEAM Chemical Indicator

  • Validated for extended 10-minute cycles
  • Easy interpretation with distinctive yellow to blue/purple color change
  • Type 6 emulating indicator


The Celerity 10 STEAM Chemical Indicator (CI) is a Type 6 emulating indicator as defined in the ANSI/AAMI/ISO 11140-1 standard. The indicator requires all critical steam sterilization parameters (time, temperature and saturated steam) to be met and is designed to specifically monitor 10 minutes 270°F (132°C) dynamic air removal steam sterilization cycles.

How the Celerity 10 STEAM Chemical Indicator Works

The Celerity 10 STEAM Chemical Indicator Strips are placed into each pack to be steam sterilized in the area deemed to be the most resistant to steam penetration. During sterilization, steam penetrates to the chemical indicator ink which undergoes a reaction causing the yellow ink to change to blue/purple. The proprietary chemical formulation provides an abrupt color change near the end of the total required exposure time assisting in the ease of interpretation.

Why the Celerity 10 STEAM Chemical Indicator?

  • Indicator length of 5.5" increases ease of locating indicators in pouches and instrument sets
  • Lot number and expiration printed on each indicator for traceability and immediate recognition of expired indicator at time of use
  • Abrupt and distinctive total color change from yellow to blue/purple reduces misinterpretation associated with gradual color change indicators
