VERIFY® STEAM Integrating Indicator 5CM

  • Seamlessly incorporates three critical variables of steam sterilization: steam, time, and temperature
  • Compact yet powerful design fits where other chemical indicators can not

The VERIFY STEAM Integrating Indicator 5CM is designed to verify following a sterilization process that critical steam sterilization parameters were met. The 2-inch long Type 5 Integrating Indicator fits where other longer chemical indicators do not, all while meeting the stringent performance requirements of ANSI/AAMI/ISO chemical indicator standard 11140-1.

How the VERIFY STEAM Integrating Indicator 5CM Works

When exposed to a steam sterilization cycle, steam penetrates the polypropylene cover, contacting the steam-sensitive chemistry within. Exposure to steam lowers the melting point of the specially formulated chemistry. As the chemistry melts, it soaks into the wicking paper and runs up the strip, turning it dark. The CI does not reach its endpoint before the biological indicator has been inactivated.

The integrating indicator confirms that all the critical steam sterilization parameters have been met when the dark line has traveled the length of the strip and entered the "ACCEPT (OK)" area. Once the dark line has entered the "ACCEPT (OK)" area, the user can be confident that the intended sterilization conditions were met.

Why the VERIFY STEAM Integrating Indicator 5CM

The VERIFY STEAM Integrating Indicator 5CM design fits many pouched and wrapped configurations. The pass and fail results are clearly displayed.

  • Provides verification that steam sterilization is achieved – Requires all the critical parameters of steam sterilization and is correlated to biological indicator kill
  • Easy-to-read compact “moving front” indicator – Fits all your steam sterilization applications
  • Manufactured without heavy metals, latex or dry natural rubber – Eliminates safety concerns over lead, heavy metals or latex allergies
