Sterilization Tape

Sterilization indicator tape is used during both steam and hydrogen peroxide sterilization methods to secure packaging for sterilization and indicate exposure to the sterilization process. STERIS’s autoclave tape and VH2O2 tape options are designed to be easily interpreted with color-changing indicator ink to help staff quickly identify processed packs. The VERIFY® Steam Indicator Tape is validated for select gravity and prevacuum steam sterilization cycles*, while VERIFY® VH2O2 Indicator Tape is designed for use with V-PRO® Low Temperature Sterilization Systems and STERRAD®** Models.*
