u-test BDS Bowie-Dick Simulation Test

The Bowie-Dick Simulation Test is used at the beginning of every day with pre-vacuum steam sterilizers (Scican Bravo, Adec Lisa, Tuttnauer Elara 11) to verify proper air removal from the autoclave chamber. Proper sterilization can be inhibited by pockets of air in the chamber that can act as a barrier and prevent steam from penetrating into wrapped or packaged items.

The maxill u-test Bowie Dick Simulation (BDS) Test consists of an external plastic casing with an internal stainless steel tube that acts as an air removal and steam penetration barrier. An internal capsule holds a chemical indicator strip that indicates all air was removed and replaced with steam.
