Bowie-Dick Test Packs are used for equipment control as a way to find out whether or not your sterilizer is doing its job properly. Bowie-Dick test packs should be used daily, after a sterilizer is installed, relocated, after sterilizer malfunction, after sterilization process failures, and after any major repairs of the sterilizer.
The 3M™ Comply™ 00135LF Bowie-Dick Plus Test Pack with Early Warning Test Sheet consists of chemical indicators on two test sheets positioned inside porous materials and sealed inside a disposable outer wrap. In addition to the regular Bowie-Dick test sheet, a sensitive early warning indicator sheet identifies problems sooner so the sterilizer may be repaired before it must be taken out of use.
The 3M™ Comply™ 1233LF Bowie-Dick Test Packs consist of a chemical indicator sheet positioned inside porous materials and sealed inside a disposable outer wrap. The 3M™ Comply™ Bowie-Dick Internal Steam Indicator Sheets are large-sized, test sheets used for health-care facility prepared, reusable towel Bowie-Dick test packs.
All Bowie-Dick products have the same lead-free light-yellow chemical indicator that turns a uniform dark brown/black if the sterilizer is functioning. Any unexpected color ink change, such as the center of the test sheet being paler or a different color than the edges (i.e., there is a non-uniform color change) indicates that there was an air pocket present during the cycle due to sterilizer malfunction.
