CT22 / Indicator Tape for Steam sterilization processes. Cintape® CT22 Process Indicators (Type 1 according ISO 11140-1:2014 standard) are single-use chemical indicators that consist of a roll of self-adhesive paper tape printed with indicator ink.
These indicators have been designed to monitor Steam sterilization processes, ensuring an adequate exposure to the sterilizing agent during the sterilization process and allowing to distinguish between processed and unprocessed items.
The adhesive component of the tape allows the adhesion to different types of packaging and wraps, such as cloth, paper and plastic being easy to remove and leaving no residues. Innovative highly sensitive yellow ink was developed to turn to dark brown / black when the indicator is exposed to Steam. Endpoint condition: 121 ºC, 10 minutes; 134 ºC, 2 minutes.
