Bowie & Dick Test
✓ In vacuum steam sterilizers, it is tested whether the saturated steam quickly and properly enters the load planned to be sterilized.
✓ The sterilizer's ability to remove the air from the cell and prevent the re-entry of air is tested with this method.
✓ For an effective sterilization in steam sterilization, the steam must reach all surfaces to be sterilized in the form of saturated steam and maintain its effect at the appropriate temperature and time.
✓ The number and depth of pre-vacuum in the Bowie-Dick test program and the pre-vacuum number and depth of the sterilization program in daily use must be the same. This control can be achieved by comparing the outputs of both programs.
✓ Bowie & Dick test pack is placed on the lowest shelf closest to the air release valve or vacuum pump when the sterilizer is empty.
✓ Sterilization time should not be longer than 3.5 minutes in the Bowie & Dick test program.
✓ At the end of the program, the test sheet is checked and if there is no problem, all lines are expected to turn into a homogeneous reference color.
✓ The Bowie & Dick test is done at the same time every day before starting operations, if the device is operated without turning off after major repairs.
✓ Bowie & Dick test results must be kept.
