Bowie Dick Daily Steam Penetration tests, for type B porus load sterilizers (Eschmann little sister 3 vacuum & SES 2000 vacuum machines).
The Verify Bowie Dick Test Pack consists of a series of steam penetration (air removal) barriers in the centre of which is a chemical indicator sheet. The indicator sheet may be stored as a permanent record of the test.
Used to qualify newly installed prevacuum sterilizers or following a major repair. Designed to monitor performance changes in air removal and steam quality during routine use. Equivalent to AAMI Bowie-Dick Test Pack. Latest in indicator ink technology, the thermochromic ink formulation can detect problems with steam quality. Free from lead and other heavy metals.

This test validates the vacuum and steam penetration of the cycle and is only required for vacuum sterilisers (Type S & Type B). It is not performed on a non-vacuum Type N steriliser.
The test is performed to ensure that the steam penetration of the cycle is efficient when processing wrapped or hollow loads.
This is achieved by validating that air and/or non-condensable gases in the chamber that impair sterilisation have been removed sufficiently by the vacuum stage of the cycle.
With air and/or non-condensable gases removed, the steam can then penetrate the entire load rapidly and evenly
