Type 5 Migrating Chemical Integrator

Sterile Processing Directs Migrating Type 5 Chemical indicator provide a clear accurate reading to determine your steam sterilization process is successful.

Type 5 Integrating Indicator 
Size: 52 mm x 21 mm.
Chemical Integrator consists 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 bar along the paper wick. The migration is visible through a zone marked ACCEPT or REJECT, thus indicating whether sterilization conditions were met. The extent of migration depends on steam quality, time, and temperature. The ACCEPT result is reached when a theoretical spore population reaches its kill time, indicating integration condition has been reached. This condition is calibrated with the kill time of 106 Geobacillus stearothermophilus spore population, calculated in BIER (Biological Indicator Evaluator Resistometer).
