Bowie Dick Test Pack 121°C is for daily monitoring of steam sterilizers operating at 121°C. The test pack is packaged in an easy to open box and designed to operate in sterilizers with cycles as defined in EN ISO 11140-4.
Global Scientific's Bowie Dick Test Pack consists of a series of air removal and steam penetration barriers. A chemical indicator is located in the center of each pack. The test pack is placed directly into an otherwise empty steam sterilizer chamber and does not require a retaining device.
During processing, steam must displace the air through the barrier material within the pack. A uniform change from yellow to blue or yellow to purple on the indicator sheet indicates that all the air was removed and replaced by steam.
The advanced technology in our thermochromic ink formulation can aid in the detection of steam quality issues. Manufactured in the absence of lead or other heavy metals.
Performed after a warm-up cycle at the beginning of every day the prevacuum steam sterilizer is in operation, the Bowie Dick (Air removal) Test verifies the prevacuum sterilizer effectively removes air. Equivalent in performance to the AAMI Bowie Dick Test, the Bowie Dick Test Pack provides reliable performance and accurate results
