Medical sterilization indicators show a color change to signify proper exposure to various sterilization processes. Medical sterilization indicators are available for EtO (ethylene oxide) sterilization with an indicator that changes from purple to green on EtO pouches. Steam sterilization indicators change from blue to pink. Radiation sterilization supplies, including e-beam and gamma sterilization pouches, change from yellow to red. These sterilization accessories can be applied by hand. The observable color changes make it easy to determine whether a particular sample has been through a qualified sterilization process. After exposure to the sterilization process, the sterilization accessories retain their color change indefinitely.
