Result of RRS Steam Chemical Indicator Type 5
The RRS chemical indicator type 5 is produced with inks that are highly sensitive to steam sterilization parameters. The color change of indicator type 5 is from green to black. The color change according to the reference indicates whether the sterilization process has been successful or not. If the color of the indicator does not change, the correct operation of the device should be checked by the technical manager.
Record the results of the chemical indicator type 5 color change in the RRS CSSD Documentation NoteBook.
