VERIFY® Steam Indicator Tape, a Type 1 Process Indicator as defined by ANSI/AAMI/ISO 11140-1, is a self-adhering sterilization tape with diagonal stripes of chemical indicator ink that will change to a dark brown/black color when exposed to steam sterilization in an autoclave.

How does the VERIFY® Steam Indicator Tape work?

Used to seal steam sterilization packs this autoclave tape will indicate exposer to common steam cycles including 250°F (121°C) gravity, 270°F (132°C) prevacuum, and 270°F (132°C) gravity. If no color change occurs, this may indicate the pack was not exposed to sterilant either from an equipment malfunction or procedural error in the process.
