Simplify. Standardize. Streamline.

  • Steam offers unmatched advantages for sterilization. For more than 100 years, it’s been the go-to sterilant for reliable and inexpensive performance in sterilizing items that are not damaged by high heat, such as scalpels and scissors. But how do you ensure that your steam sterilizer is effectively working to keep instruments safe?

    Ensuring the safety of sterilized items takes more than just following procedures. Tests for efficacy of the process are a critical component to making sure every instrument is safe to use on patients. As a leader in the field, 3M has been developing and improving technology for sterilization assurance for decades. We can offer a full portfolio of sterilization assurance products including biological indicators (BI), chemical indicators (CI), tape and other accessories for load, pack and exposure monitoring. We can partner with you to provide expert support, education and service. As an independent manufacturer of sterilization assurance products, 3M creates products that can be used to test the efficacy of a variety of sterilization systems and produce unbiased results.
