Sterin™ insect irradiation indicators

Chemistry: Advanced Materials

SDS Link >

Sterin™ insect irradiation indicators were developed for the Sterile Insect Technique program to provide positive, visual verification of irradiation at or above the printed minimum indicated dose of 70 Gy, 100 Gy, 125 Gy or 145 Gy.

When attached to products, Sterin indicators show whether or not the products have been irradiated. Before a product and its attached indicator are irradiated, the indicator reads NOT IRRADIATED. After the product is irradiated, the word “not” in the indicator window is obscured and the indicator reads IRRADIATED.

Sterin indicators only indicate that irradiation has occurred. They should not be used to measure the dose delivered by the irradiator.
