Single Use Test Pack

AS PER ISO 17665-1 “A STEAM PENETRATION TEST SHALL BE CARRIED OUT EACH DAY BEFORE THE STERILIZER IS USED”.

The TST Bowie Dick Single Use Test Pack is an accepted method of testing the steam penetration and air removal capability of a vacuum steriliser. The TST indicator system is diagnostic which helps you to speed up fault detection and steriliser repair times.

Bowie Dick Lead Free
Test Sheet

Bowie Dick Lead Free Test Sheet

MVI technology, free from the lead and heavy metal salts. The colourless indicator sheet turns to a uniform deep purple when exposed to rapid and even steam penetration. However, should the sheet be exposed to an inadequate Bowie Dick cycle, inefficient air removal, the presence of an air leak or other non-condensable gas, a clearly visible fail will be evident on the sheet. The test sheets have been calibrated for use in a standard towel pack as specified.

TST Control Indicators
for Steam Sterilizers

Cycle Verification (Emulating) Indicators - All Conforms to ISO 11140-1 Class 6(2)

The TST Control Indicators provide the most specific information of any chemical indicator available. All Indicators have been calibrated to perform to the predefined parameters of a particular process, helping the end users detect process failure by confirming that all of the predetermined cycle parameters have occurred at point of placement in each tray, pack or pouch. Changing from yellow to dark blue.

Lead Free
Multi Variable Indicator
for Steam Sterilization

Revolutionary, Non-Toxic, Reliable and Economical

MVI indicator will change colour when exposed to the sterilant/disinfectant providing users with clear reassurance that the agent has penetrated to the point of placement in each tray, pack or pouch. MVI’s can be used in all cycles ranging from 120o C-140o C. The Indicator shows a clear pass changing from Colourless to Purple when steam has penetrated the pouch or container.

Lead Free
Multi Variable Indicator
for Ethylene Oxide Sterilization

Revolutionary, Non-Toxic, Reliable and Economical

MVI Ethylene Oxide Indicators can be used in all current ethylene oxide sterilization processes. When placed inside trays, packs or pouches, MVI Ethylene Oxide Indicators will confirm that the gas has penetrated to the point of placement. Changing from bright orange to vivid red, end users have clear visual reassurances of exposure to an ethylene oxide sterilization process.

Ethylene Oxide Integrators

The Ethylene Oxide Integrating Indicators provides users with clear visual reassurance that the agent has penetrated to the point of placement in each tray, pack or pouch. The control indicator turns from red to green when adequate sterilizing conditions have been reached.

It will show a fail if the relative humidity level, gas concentration, temperature or duration of exposure falls outside of the specified limits.

Bio Monitors

Bio Monitors contain a known quantity of bacterial spores inoculated onto filter paper and placed inside a plastic culture tube with a crushable glass ampule containing the culture medium.
