3M™ Attest™ Rapid Readout Biological Indicators

3M™ Attest™ Rapid Readout Biological Indicators

Every Load Monitoring. Facilities that monitor every patient with care should monitor every load with care.

Your healthcare facility invests considerable resources in making sure every patient receives a consistent, high level of care. Many quality-driven institutions are applying that same standard to sterile processing by using a biological indicator to monitor every steam sterilization load. Every Load Monitoring applies the same high standard of care for all patients to help reduce the risk of healthcare-associated infections.
