VERIFY® STEAM Integrating Indicator

  • Seamlessly incorporates three critical variables of steam sterilization: steam, time, and temperature
  • Reduces risk of releasing a non-sterile load before the corresponding BI result is known
  • Provides easy-to-interpret results
  • Four inch strip for use in a variety of cycles and is easy to both place and find in packs

The VERIFY STEAM Integrating Indicator has evolved to meet the rigorous sterility assurance expectations of healthcare facilities today. Clarity and simplicity meet function to form the perfect integrating indicator in the VERIFY STEAM Integrating Indicator.

How VERIFY STEAM Integrating Indicators Work

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 and as the chemistry melts it soaks into the wicking paper and runs up the strip, turning it dark. The rate at which the line moves has been correlated with the biological indicator's inactivation.

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)" window. Once the dark line has entered the "ACCEPT (OK)" window, the critical parameters have been met.

Why VERIFY STEAM Integrating Indicators

The VERIFY STEAM Integrating Indicator's unique window design removes the guess work in interpretation. The pass and fail results are clearly displayed.

  • Streamline inventory – Four inch length provides versatility and ease of retrieval
  • Manufactured in the absence of heavy metals, latex or dry natural rubber – No concerns over lead, heavy metals or latex allergies
  • Type 5 Integrating Indicator – Complies with ANSI/AAMI/ ISO 11140-1
  • Confidently use steam sterilized items – requires all the critical parameters of steam sterilization and is correlated to biological indicator kill
