Steam Emulating Indicator Type 6 < Back to overview
Interster has developed a new Steam Emulating Indicator Type 6 which meets all the requirements of ISO 11140-1. The Steam Emulating Indicator Type 6 is a chemical indicator which checks all critical parameters of the sterilization process. By means of the colour changing from blue to light pink it is indicated that all parameters (time, temperature, pressure and steam penetration) are sufficient to approve the sterilization process.
The Steam Emulating Indicator Type 6 is made of 240 gr./m2 material and is printed in offset. The indicator contains a specially developed indicator ink which is affixed through a silkscreen printing process. All used inks are lead-free. The indicator is laminated on both sides.
The new Steam Emulating Indicator Type 6 has the size of 25 x 50 mm. As a result of the indicator being of a smaller size it is possible to pack it in any laminate pouch. Furthermore the outer packaging of the indicator is smaller in size which results into the benefit of saving costs on transport and storage.
The indicator has been tested under supervision of the BSI Group. The Steam Emulating Indicator Type 6 has been tested positively and has therefore been certified with a BSI Kitemark and fully meets the standards of ISO 11140-1. The compliance with the ISO 11140-1 is mentioned on both the outer packaging as well as on the indicator itself.
For an easy traceability of the Type 6 indicator, all data and options for making notes are placed on the front of the indicator. Therefore the end user can see all relevant information on the front.
Due to the Type 6 indicator changing colour from blue to light pink, a clear contrast is visible between a successful and unsuccessful process. The contrast has the goal to provide full certainty in decision making on a positive or negative result of the process.
The Steam Emulating Indicator Type 6 is also available in:
