Increase Efficiency in Your Workflow
Getinge Assured offers a comprehensive portfolio of wash monitoring and sterility assurance indicators to help check the effectiveness of instrument reprocessing. The technologically superior product line gives the highest possible patient safety and care at hospital.
Improve Patient Safety
Using products which monitor the success or failure of the entire decontamination process, at relatively little cost, will help reduce hospital-acquired infections. Consequently, now there are means of effectively managing sterile production, which in turn can reduce hospital expenses. This will manifest itself in fewer cancelled operations, just in time delivery of sterile instru-ments and contribute to optimization of the patient’s experience
Reduce Environmental Footprint
By using best in class and unique technology, developed and owned by Getinge, they offer a Getinge Assured product range with inks that are non-toxic and contain no toxic heavy metals in their base ingredients. Getinge chemical indica-tors are sterilant specific to provide diagnostic results that will help detect inadequacies with relevant parameters impor-tant for instrument reprocessing. Getinge Assured is not only about wash monitoring and sterility assurance, it is also about having complete control in how one impact their local environment.
Compliance to Relevant International and Local Standards
Getinge Assured products are all manufactured at ISO 9001 and ISO 13485 certified Getinge facilities and are tested against all relevant standards such as EN ISO 15883, EN ISO 11140 parts 1 and 4, and EN ISO 11138.

As a final assurance of cleanliness, they offer a full range of residual protein tests for surfaces and instruments including hollow lumens and endoscopes. With an instant protein reaction, these tests are quick and easy to use and can detect residual protein down to 1 microgram in less than 10 seconds.
Daily Machine Release Indicators
In accordance with international requirements of EN ISO 17665-1, the Bowie-Dick-type test remains the benchmark for daily testing of the mechanical function of vacuum assisted steam sterilizer. The test monitors effective air removal and steam penetration allowing releasing the sterilizer for daily use. Getinge’s innovative Bowie-Dick type tests have been developed and tested to conform to the requirements of EN ISO 11140-4. Their highly sensitive advanced ink technology provides greater accuracy and user information on process conditions compared to conventional test packs. In addition, the compact design of the Getinge Check Mini Bowie-Dick test requires less paper and minimizes usage cost, transport cost, storage space, and environmental footprint.
Pack Release Indicators
Getinge Assured Emulating Indicators are the most advanced chemical indicators for monitoring the specific steam sterilization parameters of time, temperature, and steam inside the pack. When a pack is opened, OR staff can quickly verify that the conditions for sterilization were achieved in the location in the sterilizer where the pack was placed.
