The new Hu-Friedy Steam Sterilisation integrators are a multi-parameter chemical indicator and are a more stringent, reliable indication that sterilisation parameters have been met compared to other classes of sterilization monitors. The integrator is used to monitor the steam sterilization process and can be placed inside each pack or load.
Partcode: IMS-1241 (100 per box)
FEATURES & BENEFITS
- The integrator’s Moving Front Indicator Technology gives a better indication of acceptance, no interpretation of color change needed
- The strip is easily visible inside the pack (2" long) allowing users to easily view the integrator from the outside of a pouch or within a cassette in order to view sterilization at a glance
- Product is lead free and does not contribute to environmental lead contamination, making it safe for the environment, there are no special hazardous waste requirements
- Product is not made with natural rubber latex making it safe for staff and patients with latex sensitivity or allergies
- Integrators function with a variety of steam sterilizers - gravity, pre-vacuum and flash sterilizers, no need to inventory different monitor products
Integrators are a Class 5 sterilization monitor designed to react to all critical variables in the sterilization cycle: time, temperature and presence of steam
Steam Sterilization Indicators Class I
A Class 1 indicators used to verify that sterilisation parameters (time and temperature) have been met. Use one in each cassette or pouch and retain for office records.

IMS Monitor Tape
Strong tape can be written on and visually differentiates processed from non-processed cassettes. Available by procedure type (pre-printed), color-coded or blank.
Hu-Friedy has developed lead and latex free monitor tape for labeling and packaged instrument cassettes therefore expanding the product range of its successful instrument management system. The environmentally-friendly monitor tape excludes the risk of lead contamination and enhances safety for patients and users who suffer latex allergies.
The monitoring tape can be labeled, for example with cassette content and date, for greater transparency and efficiency in everyday practice work. It also serves as a reliable process indicator: Black strips appear on the tape once the cassette has been sterilised in the autoclave.
Confusion with cassettes that have not yet passed through this working step is reliably excluded as a result. Avoiding lead and latex, the new monitoring tape is simple to dispose of after use.
