3M™ Comply™ SteriGage™ 1243A Steam Chemical Integrators

Product Description

Pack of 100.
For any autoclave that does not give a parameter printout of a cycle, the autoclave must be verified each day it is used. To do this a class 5 indicator should be placed in the centre bottom of the autoclave (preferably in the morning). The indicator changes colour when all parameters have been met for a cycle i.e. time, temp and pressure.

3M™ Comply™ SteriGage™ 1243A, 1243B, and 1243E Steam Chemical Integrators are chemical indicators consisting of a paper wick and a steam and temperature sensitive chemical pellet contained in a paper/film/foil laminate. The chemical pellet melts and migrates as a dark color along the paper wick. The migration is visible through a window marked REJECT or ACCEPT. The extent of migration depends on steam, time, and temperature.

This product is also available with an extender strip affixed to one end of a Comply SteriGage 1243 Steam Chemical Integrator and is labeled as Comply SteriGage 1243E Steam Chemical Integrator. The affixed extender is a 19 cm (7.5 in) long by 1 cm (0.375 in) wide rigid, paperboard strip that serves as a handle to retrieve processed integrators from inner packs.

Use Comply SteriGage 1243A, 1243B, and 1243E Steam Chemical Integrators for pack control monitoring of all 118-138ºC (245-280ºF) steam sterilization cycles.
