What is a Chemical Indicator?

Chemical Indicators are required to confirm the sterilisation or decontamination process has been successful.

Chemical indicators are used to check whether the Sterilisation and Decontamination process has been undertaken correctly. They are used to test decontamination equipment to determine whether the sterilisation process is operating to regulatory standards. They are designed to respond to one or more conditions in the sterilisation chamber and are used as part of routine quality monitoring processes. Chemical Indicators can be used in a range of sectors, including Laboratory, Dental, Life Science and Healthcare.

Chemical indicators are used to challenge the sterilisation and decontamination processes that are equal to or greater than the challenge posed by the most challenging item routinely processed through the equipment.
