The Ultimate Electronic Bowie Dick Test

SteriSense® is a reliable and cost efficient Electronic Bowie Dick Test that provides you with verification of critical sterilization parameters beyond that of chemical indicators.











Introduction to the Bowie Dick Test

The Bowie Dick test, also referred to as an air removal test or steam penetration test, is used for daily routine control of steam sterilizers (autoclaves) to verify that they perform in accordance with ISO 17665.

A safe and reliable test is important to use, as proper air removal is crucial for the performance of the steam sterilizer. Any air left in the sterilizer can impact how the steam penetrates the load and thereby the sterilization of the instruments. The Bowie Dick test is commonly used in Central Sterile Services Departments (CSSD) as part of the daily morning routine before releasing the steam sterilizer for use.  

Peace of mind with SteriSense®

SteriSense is a brand new and innovative Electronic Bowie Dick Test (air removal test) that is unmatched in accuracy, performance and reliability. The Bowie Dick test provides far more insight into critical sterilization parameters than previously possible. Unlike traditional chemical indicators, where you subjectively decide according to a change in color, SteriSense also offers an accurate report that eliminates any guess work.
