Our Vapor Line® Integrator is a single use, instant read-out chemical indicator designed to monitor the efficacy of steam sterilization. Vapor Line® can be used in any gravity displacement or pre-vacuum steam sterilizer that operates between 121ºC and 135ºC (250ºF and 275ºF).The integrator’s performance has been validated as equivalent to that of biological indicators. Vapor Line® integrator monitors the sterilization cycle, and includes an “overkill” margin, which ensures that conditions required to kill even the most resistant forms of microorganism are met or exceeded.
Vapor Line® integrators are lead, heavy metal and latex free. The integrator consists of a colored pellet which is encased in a complex of paper and aluminum foil housing. Vapor Line® is non-toxic and non-hazardous when used according to manufacturer guidelines. The integrator is also safely disposable with regular trash.
