Sterilization Indicators

ACA-60 series radiation sterilization indicators fully transition from yellow to deep orange or red when exposed to selected ranges of gamma radiation. They are produced using water resistant paper with a pressure sensitive adhesive backing, and are easily applied to cardboard, paper or plastic cartons by peeling individual labels from rolls or via METO® gun. ACA-60 series radiation sterilization indicators are used in inventory control applications — they are not dosimeters.

Typical applications include inventory control tracking, food safety control measures, and medical supplies sterilization batch lot tracking.

 Product Name




Sterilization indicator. This 25 kGy medical product inventory control sterilization indicator changes color from yellow to red upon exposure to 25 kiloGrays of gamma radiation. Not a dosimeter.

A typical application is inventory control of medical products, supplies and implements. Wound dressing material or a sterile solution, for example, is manufactured and placed in its inventory package and in its shipping packaging; each shipping package has a sterilization indicator applied to it and the shipping packs are palletized; then the entire pallet is processed though the sterilization procedure. The indicator on each shipping package shows that the item has passed through the process.

When coated on our water-resistant paper with its pressure-sensitive adhesive backing, the indicators may be die cut, custom printed, and slit into rolls for hand application or application with a METO® gun.
