Title (EN) STERILIZATION INDICATOR
(FR) INDICATEUR DE STÉRILISATION
Abstract:
(EN) To provide a sterilization indicator capable of suppressing the occurrence of soluble substance leakage during autoclaving. Resolution means: A sterilization indicator comprises a substrate member provided with an accommodating part for accommodating a soluble substance and extends in a first direction and in a second direction orthogonal to the first direction as seen in plan view, a wick member provided contacting at least part of the soluble substance and extends in a first direction, and a cover member that covers the soluble substance and the wick member and is provided on the substrate member. A hole is provided in at least the cover member, the hole being in a position to the first direction side of the center of the accommodating part, adjacent to an edge of the accommodating part by a minimum distance dl between the edge of the accommodating part and an edge of the cover member, and separated from the edge of the accommodating part by a maximum outer dimension r of the hole.
(FR) La présente invention a pour objet de fournir un indicateur de stérilisation qui peut supprimer l'apparition d'une fuite de substance soluble pendant une stérilisation en autoclave. La solution consiste en un indicateur de stérilisation qui comprend un élément de substrat pourvu d'une partie de réception destinée à recevoir une substance soluble et s'étend dans une première direction et dans une seconde direction orthogonale à la première direction comme observé dans une vue en plan, un élément de mèche disposé de sorte à venir en contact avec au moins une partie de la substance soluble et qui s'étend dans une première direction, et un élément de couvercle qui recouvre la substance soluble et l'élément de mèche et est disposé sur l'élément de substrat. Un trou est ménagé dans au moins l'élément de couvercle, le trou se trouvant à une position côté première direction du centre de la partie de réception, adjacent à un bord de la partie de réception par une distance minimale (d1) entre le bord de la partie de réception et un bord de l'élément de couvercle, et séparé du bord de la partie de réception par une dimension externe maximale (r) du trou.
