HOW STERAFFIRM BOWIE DICK TEST PACKS WORK
STERIS Steraffirm Bowie Dick Test Packs should be placed over the drain each day to test your pre-vacuum steam sterilizer. During the cycle, the indicator ink will change from yellow to a blue/purple color. After the cycle is complete, the indicator card can be removed and kept for your records. Steraffirm Bowie Dick Test packs can help identify a problem before you have sterilization failures while helping to identify the potential source of the problem.
