Staff turnover. Workflow pressure. Human error. Your job is tough. Your job is important. And we're here to ensure your voice remains heard and understood. We've been helping Central Sterilization departments and healthcare facilities overcome the challenges they face for over 50+ years with a holistic approach to sterilization assurance - and we're just getting started.
3M™ Attest™ Sterilization Monitoring Solutions are designed to help you tackle daily challenges, improve workﬂows and reduce costs.
With the science of 3M behind you, you can be conﬁdent that every sterilization cycle is monitored prior to instrument use so every patient receives a high level of care.
From inventing the ﬁrst rapid steam biological indicator (BI) more than 30 years ago to oﬀering a BI with the most FDA-cleared VH202 sterilizers and cycle types in the industry today, 3M innovations continue to provide the assurance you need.
3M™ Attest™ Super Rapid Readout Biological Indicators for Steam are the ﬁrst BI products with BSI Kitemark™ certiﬁcation of ISO 11138 standard. And 3M™ Attest™ Rapid Biological Indicator for VH2O2 reliably monitors VH2O2 sterilization processes and provides accurate results in 24 minutes.*
Continuing to lead the way with chemical indicators (CIs), 3M™ Attest™ Vaporized Hydrogen Peroxide (VH2O2) Tri-Metric Chemical Indicator, Type 4 provides a higher level of quality assurance for monitoring VH2O2 sterilization processes compared to other Type 1 and Type 4 VH2O2 CIs tested.1 Likewise, 3M™Attest™ Steam Chemical Integrators, Type 5 prove to be easiest to ﬁnd and easiest to read when compared to other Type 5 chemical integrators tested.2,3
You can standardize practice across mulitple facilites or your individual office - all with efficiency and training ease. Implementing 3M's simple easy-to-use, family of sterilization products is at your fingertips. Learn more about our 3M™ Attest™ 490 Starter Kits options and how you can save:
