The 3M™ Attest™ Rapid Steam Biological Indicator, 1292-S, Brown Cap, monitors 250°F/121°C gravity displacement and 270°F/132°C vacuum-assisted steam sterilization processes and is appropriate for use in industrial (Life Science) steam sterilization applications when verified by the end user. It is compliant with ISO 11138-1:2017 and ISO 11138-3:2017 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, 1292-S, is easy to use, activate and interpret. It’s a reliable monitoring device for 250°F/121°C gravity displacement and 270°F/132°C vacuum-assisted steam sterilization cycles that can be used for industrial (Life Science) sterilization applications when verified by the end user.

The self-contained biological indicator (BI) consists of a Geobacillus stearothermophilus spore strip and 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. The label includes a chemical process indicator. The BI is packaged in a foil pouch designed to protect the product from humidity excursions.

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. When processed, the chemical process indicator turns from rose/pink to brown/black.

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