STERIS Receives Innovative Technology Designation

STERIS announced its VERIFY All-In-One Reusable Test Pack and VERIFY Assert Self Contained Biological Indicator have each received a 2017 Innovative Technology designation from Vizient Inc.

The designations are based on direct feedback from hospital experts who interacted with the VERIFY All-In-One Reusable Test Pack and VERIFY Assert Self Contained Biological Indicator at the Vizient Innovative Technology Exchange held in Denver, on September 14, 2017.

The VERIFY All-In-One Reusable Test Pack decreases inventory and storage needs by consolidating a single pack for all prevacuum steam air removal and microbial testing needs. One reusable test pack replaces three types of disposable test packs, which reduces waste and can reduce per cycle cost up to 30 percent by using the same test pack up to 200 times.

VERIFY Assert Self Contained Biological Indicator helps facilities keep pace with the busiest OR schedules with the assurance of the industry’s fastest load release, just 40 minutes, for standard cycles.

VERIFY ASSERT SCBI award designation. The PCD is 33 percent smaller than standard test packs and allows for instant confirmation of chemical indicator results upon cycle completion.
