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.
