Canadian sterilization pouch manufacturer GS Medical Packaging has integrated Class 4 Indicators into its sterilization pouches.
GS Medical Packaging general manager John Sherlock said the company’s plant is equipped with new technology that allows it to produce the integrated pouches with better controls.
"A pouch with Class 4 indicators already built in saves the market the cost of manually inserting them each time," Sherlock said.
The Class 4 Multi-Parameter Steam Indicator meets the three key parameters that determe effectiveness of steam sterilization including time, temperature and the presence of steam.
GS Medical Packaging specializes in a variety of sterilization packaging used by medical device companies and hospitals, among others.
