Ethylene Oxide Indicator < Back to overview
The Ethylene Oxide Indicator is used in low temperature ethylene oxide sterilization. This is an effective method of sterilization of heat sensitive medical devices that are not suitable for steam sterilization at 121°C of 134°C such as thermo sensetive instruments.
Correlated to inactivation for ethylene oxide, the indicator monitors the critical parameters of the sterilization process. The ink will change from light blue to green under the correct circumstances. The strips are conform EN-ISO 11140-1 (Type 4).
