Electronic Test System – A revolution in sterilization monitoring
Developed by 3M Health Care Business in conjunction with leading sterile service professionals, the pioneering 3M™ Electronic Test System (ETS) is a vital step forward for sterilization assurance programs.
A unique, stand alone device, the ETS measures the physical parameters of a steam sterilization cycle.It eliminates the possibility of subjective interpretation of results, indicates causes of failure and enables computer aided graphic analysis with precise data archiving.
Unlike other test systems, the ETS clearly shows the test result as a «pass» or «fail». These functions together with a number of other innovative design characteristics ensure that the ETS provides the accurate and independent sterilization testing that sterile service professionals rely on.
