3M™ Attest™ Rapid Readout Biological Indicator System can help you feel assured that your Vapourized Hydrogen Peroxide Sterilization Cycle has worked correctly while also keeping up with the demand.
3M™ Attest™ Rapid Readout Biological Indicator system is a ‘game changer’ for Reprocessing Departments using Vapourized Hydrogen Peroxide sterilization.
With the system, techs can now receive sterility assurance six times faster, with biological indicator results in just 4 hours instead of 24, making it easy to provide patients with the highest and most consistent quality of care.
In fact, it could be possible to have biological results on the same day, during the same shift, perhaps even with the same operator, while there’s still time to act, if necessary.
Speed is Important, but Traditional Vapourized Hydrogen Peroxide Sterilization Processing Time Doesn’t Match Demand for Instruments
Many sterile reprocessing techs battle with the fact that Vapourized Hydrogen Peroxide sterilization can be a lengthy process, normally taking 24 full hours to complete – a timeframe that just doesn’t keep up with demand for instruments.
Now You Can Feel Assured that Sterilization Has Been Successful Before Releasing Instruments
As a result of the 24 hour processing time, Vapourized Hydrogen Peroxide Sterilization loads are often released before they are validated with a biological indicator – a practice that seems to stand staunchly against the safety protocols that sterilization techs are used to.
Even a small deviation in sterile processing best practices can open the door to risk.
When Vapourized Hydrogen Peroxide Sterilization failures aren’t detected for 24 hours it may be too late to prevent the inadequately processed instruments from being used on patients.
However, with the 3M™ Attest™ Rapid Readout Biological Indictor System, you can now receive sterility assurance with biological indicator results in just 4 short hours. Watch the video:
