Vapor Line® Steam Chemical Integrator is a chemical indicator for monitoring essential conditions of steam sterilization. Vapor Line® is an AAMI/ANSI/ISO 11140-1 Type 5 steam integrator, it is designed to show equivalence in performance to biological indicators.
During sterilization, the dark brown/black bar migrates along a paper wick from FAIL into the PASS area. PASS results indications that conditions in the sterilized pack were sufficient to kill even the most resistant forms of microorganisms, plus a “overkill period”. The “overkill period” is a safety zone beyond the spore death curve for an additional level of sterilization security.
