The 3M Attest Mini Auto-reader 490M keeps sterilizer testing in house with results in less than half an hour.

Information provided by 3M.

The Problem

Weekly biological indicator testing of dental sterilizers can take up to a week to produce results when using an outside lab

A malfunctioning sterilizer could remain in use, and improperly sterilized instruments could be used with patients while waiting for the results of a spore test sent to a lab.
