Getinge Mini Bowie Dick Test Pack

Daily Machine Release

The Bowie-Dick test remains the benchmark for the daily testing of the mechanical air removal function of your vacuum assisted steam sterilizer. This test consists of multiple layers of impedance that challenge the sterilizer's ability to penetrate the pack with steam and successfully remove the air, thereby ensuring the unit can be released for daily use.


By verifying the proper air removal of your sterilizer, added assurance is provided that the equipment is performing as intended. This minimizes the risk of potential errors in the process and lowers the risk of spreading infection in the healthcare environment. This means improved patient safety and reduced cost for the healthcare facility.
