The VERIFY STEAM Integrating Indicator verifies that critical steam sterilization parameters were met. Available in two sizes, the 2-inch Type 5 Integrating Indicator fits where other chemical indicators do not, and both sizes meet stringent performance requirements of the ANSI/AAMI/ISO chemical indicator standard 11140-1.

How VERIFY STEAM Integrating Indicators Work

When exposed to a steam sterilization cycle, steam penetrates the clear film cover and lowers the melting point of the specially formulated pellet. As the pellet melts, it soaks into the wicking paper and a bar travels along the strip. The rate at which the bar moves has been correlated to a biological indicator's kill time.

When the bar has traveled the length of the strip and enters the "ACCEPT (OK)" area, this serves as confirmation that all critical steam sterilization parameters have been met.

Why VERIFY STEAM Integrating Indicators 

  • Compliance - Type 5 Integrating Indicator conforms with ANSI/AAMI/ ISO 11140-1
  • Assurance - Provides verification that steam sterilization parameters were met
  • Standardization - Compact “moving front” chemical indicator that fits your steam sterilization applications, available in both a 4-inch or 2-inch strip
  • Clear Results - The 4-inch chemical indicator uses a unique window design to remove the guess work in interpretation since the results are clearly displayed
