Price: $28.10

Product Code: C1-SGC

Description Technical Specs Literature
Gas-Chex® EO Indicator Strips monitor the critical parameters of ethylene oxide (EO|EtO) sterilization.

  • Chemical Indicator Strips for Ethylene Oxide (EO|EtO) sterilization for use inside every pack, pouch, tray, or other containment device.
  • Distinct red to green color change that will not revert
  • Responsive to all critical parameters of EO sterilization (temperature, gas concentration, humidity, and time).
Gas-Chex® EO Indicator Strips monitor gas concentration and exposure and are especially suitable for checking for adequate humidity during the cycle. In the absence of humidity, the color change to green will not occur, even if the other exposure conditions were adequate.

The word “gas” on the indicator strip changes from red to green to indicate that it is safe to move forward. GREEN MEANS GO!

How It Works:
Place a Gas-Chex® EO Indicator strip into each pack, pouch, tray, or other containment device. After processing, when the sterile presentation is made, examine the Gas-Chex® mark; it must be green. Brown color or the original red unchanged indicates underprocessing, do not use the pack’s contents. Return for reprocessing and determine the cause of the failure.
