I need fast, accurate sterilization monitoring.

Health care professionals worldwide have come to trust 3M's sterilization monitoring solutions to help them monitor all stages of the sterilization process, from load and pack monitoring, to equipment and exposure control.

I need low temperature sterilization solutions.

Because they offer so many places for microorganisms to hide, heat- and moisture-sensitive medical devices are inherently difficult to clean and sterilize. 3M™ Steri-Vac™ systems set today's standard in low temperature sterilization, allowing you to provide every patient with a wrapped, terminally sterilized device.

I need to provide the highest standard of care.

Your healthcare facility invests considerable resources in making sure every patient receives a consistent, high level of care. Now you can apply that same standard to sterile processing. With Every Load Monitoring, instead of using a biological indicator daily to monitor steam sterilization loads, you can use one in every load to help reduce the risk of HAIs.

I need eco-friendly sterilization solutions.

As concerns about the long-term health effects of lead and other toxic metals continue to grow, standardizing on lead-free products makes good sense.
