STF Load Check

The STF Load Check Indicator & Holder is intended for use inside each basket or tray to verify the cleaning efficacy of a surgical instrument washer disinfector machine.

The STF Load Check Indicator is a chemical Indicator manufactured from a plastic substrate that is printed on both sides, with a pattern of dried test soil formula.

The STF Load Check Holder is manufactured from 304 grade stainless steel and is corrosion and abrasion resistant. It will withstand the chemical, mechanical and thermal strains encountered during the normal washer disinfector process.

Complete removal of the dried test soil pattern from the plastic substrate provides a qualitative assessment of the washer disinfector cleaning performance.

Key Features:
•The indicator contains no blood products
•Non toxic
•Performance equivalent to cleaning efficacy soil tests for surgical instruments described in BS2745 and ISO/TS15883-5:2005 and HTM 2030
