Description

PCD-A-E1 / Test strips for use in Helix-PCD System. Laminated self-adhesive strips printed with indicator ink (77 x 6 mm), for Ethylene Oxide sterilization processes. 240 min. 54° C, 600 mg/l 60% RH. Turns from Light Blue to Green. Metals free. ISO 11140-1 Type 2.

Chemical strips (Type 2 Chemical Indicator according to ISO 11140-1:2014) for use with Helix-PCD in the control of ethylene oxide sterilization processes. Indicator 100% free of toxic heavy metals.

Instructions for use

1. Insert PCD-A-E1 chemical indicator, according to the selected process conditions, within the pin (metal capsule) or slot (plastic capsule) of the screw cap; settle the reactive indicating ink towards the capsule lumen, avoiding folding those areas printed with reactive indicating ink.

IMPORTANT: avoid contact between PCD-A-E1 chemical indicator and capsule interior surface, because it can alter the result.

2. Put the capsule cap with moderate pressure.

3. Settle the system into the fabric bag.

4. The entire system should be sterilized according to the usual cycle used. For example: 240 minutes, 600 mg/l, 54 ºC, 60% RH. Do not use cycles below 90 minutes and EO 300 mg/l.

Initial color: sky blue

Final color: green

5. After the period of ventilation, remove the indicator and evaluate the result. If the 4 bars change to the final color, the result can be considered successful, which means the sterilizer is working correctly. If one bar doesn€™t reach the final color, it means that residual air is present in the sterilizer, therefore a malfunction of the equipment.
