Steam

Steam sterilization is the most commonly used process world wide due to affordability and accessibility of autoclaves and steam sterilizers. Typically, steam cycles are ran at 121ºC, 132ºC or 134ºC for 3.5 to 30+ minutes. Steam autoclaves and sterilizers are found in hospital, dental and health care settings, laboratories of medical device manufacturers, pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, universities, contract sterilization facilities and within the food and beverage markets. True Indicating offers a variety of products, both biological and chemical indicators, for monitoring steam processes.
