Chemical Indicators for Sterilization

WHAT ARE CHEMICAL INDICATORS?

Chemical indicators monitor whether the parameters to achieve sterilization have been met for a specific sterilization process, such as steam or vaporized hydrogen peroxide sterilization. After exposure to predetermined critical parameters like temperature, time, or sterilant, chemical indicators undergo physical or chemical changes visible to the human eye.
