Monitoring the sterilisation process
In the sterilisation process, chemical indicators are used for monitoring and as a supplement to the parametric process documentation. They work in accordance to specific “SV” – stated values, defined by the ISO 11140-1: with sufficient steam exposure, the indicator changes its colour. Incomplete colour change indicates a malfunction of the steriliser or unprocessed items. After the colour change, the colour of the indicator will not change any more, giving you completely security of documentation. Our stericlin® indicators contain no heavy metals or toxic substances.
