Indicator strips Type 5 (STEAM) of stericlin®
Integrated indicators according to DIN EN ISO 11140-1
Our stericlin® indicator strips Type 5 check your sterilisation processes for sufficient steam exposure (steam, temperature and time) in the interior of trays or other selected locations. The specifications for this arise from the behaviour of biological indicators. It can be checked independently with different sterile barrier systems within a batch. The indicator Type 5 is particularly advantageous if you sterilise your reprocessed medical products at both 121 °C and 134 °C.
The indicator strips are easy to use:
- Place at the desired locations in the loading area (in see-through packaging, wrapping materials, containers, etc.)
- Perform sterilisation program
- Remove indicator strip
- Check result
With sufficient steam exposure, the indicator changes colour from blue to pink, incomplete colour change means a malfunction of the steriliser.
The stericlin® indicator strips meet the requirements of DIN EN ISO 11140-1 for the designated Type 5 (Integrators). For both performance requirements, we ensure a high precision resistometer for testing purposes. Therefore, we guarantee standard compliance and absolute consistency of this product.
Stericlin® indicators contain no heavy metals or toxic substances. After the initial colour change, the colour of the indicator no longer changes. This gives you absolute security documentation.
