More about this item

When the sterility of your instruments is in question, the health and safety of your patients are at risk. The 3M Attest system for steam sterilization gives you the technology you need to make monitoring every load possible—with a reader that delivers BI results in soon as 24 minutes. Plus, the Attest advantage helps standardize workflows and processes, reducing human error and ensuring an even higher level of patient safety.

Features

  • Dual Auto reader features Any Well technology—allowing steam and VH202 BIs to be incubated in any well of the auto reader at the same time
  • Intelligent display with time-to-result countdown feature
  • Display is viewable remotely using your PC
  • Use the 3M™ Web Application for real-time BI status, results and digital record keeping
  • Reader connects to leading instrument tracking software systems

Preparation and Use

Inspect

Remove the BI from the pouch and reseal. Verify the media ampoule is intact and that the on-cap indicator stripes are blue.

Pouch

Place the BI and chemical indicator (CI) in the peel-pouch indicated for use in vaporized hydrogen peroxide (VH2O2) sterilization processes.

Process

Seal the pouch and place inside the sterilizer, white side up. Process the load as recommended by the sterilizer manufacturer.

Identify

When the cycle is complete, inspect and verify the media ampoule is intact and that the on-cap indicator stripes have turned towards pink. Identify the BI by writing on the label.

Activation and Incubation

Activate

Squeeze the BI in the activator to close the cap and crush the media ampoule.

Flick

Remove the BI and flick your wrist to ensure media flows into the growth chamber.

Inspect

Verify the media has transferred to the BI growth chamber at the bottom of the vial.

Incubate

Place the activated BI in any well—the LCD panel displays remaining minutes of incubation or the test results. DO NOT REMOVE THE BI until the (+) or (-) symbol indicates the test is complete.
