With the autoclave tape, is there a number of stripes that need to turn color in order for the packet to be deemed properly sterilzed?

Hi Diana,
Thank you for your question. For our autoclave tape (the tape that goes on the outside of the pack) all of the stripes need to turn color. It may vary depending on manufacture so make sure you refer to your specific indicator tape/strip instructions. They also have different stripes/tape for gas vs autoclave too.
