  • Color-coded for quick reference and easy use

The 3M™ Attest™ Rapid Steam Biological Indicator, 1292E, Brown Cap, monitors 250°F/121°C to 253°F/123°C gravity displacement and 250°F/121°C to 273°F/134°C vacuum-assisted steam sterilization processes and provides a final fluorescent result at 3 hours.

The ISO 11138-1:2017 and ISO 11138-3:2017 compliant 3M™ Attest™ Rapid Steam Biological Indicator, 1292E, is used for 250°F/121°C to 253°F/123°C gravity displacement and 250°F/121°C to 273°F/134°C vacuum-assisted steam sterilization cycles.

The self-contained biological indicator (BI) consists of a Geobacillus stearothermophilus spore strip and a sealed glass ampoule with growth media and dual indicator system. The spore strip and media ampoule are contained in a plastic vial topped with a brown color-coded cap which includes a chemical process indicator on top.

When processed, the chemical process indicator turns from rose to brown. After the steam sterilization process, the BI is activated to join the growth media with the processed spore strip. The BI is incubated in the 3M™ Attest™ Auto-reader 390 for a final fluorescent result at 3 hours.

Note:  The 3M™ Attest™ Rapid Readout Biological Indicator 1292E, for Steam Sterilization, is only compatible with the 3M™ Attest™ Auto-reader 390. Contact a 3M healthcare representative for more information.
