VERIFY Bowie-Dick Test Card is a compact air removal test, ideal for small steam sterilizers. The record card is the first test that generates no waste at all. The card is the test – providing a convenient system for testing prevacuum sterilizers.

How the VERIFY Bowie-Dick Test Card works

The VERIFY Bowie-Dick Test Card consists of a card printed on one side with bars of chemical indicator ink. On the opposite side of the card, space is provided for critical cycle information to be stored.

In an otherwise empty chamber, place the VERIFY Bowie-Dick Test Card, with chemical indicator bars facing up, in a test card holder on the lowest shelf over the sterilizer drain. During the vacuum phase of the cycle, air is removed from this uniquely designed product. Following air removal, the chemical bars uniformly darken with exposure to steam. If air is trapped in the air removal test card during the exposure phase of the cycle, all the bars will not show even color change. Upon completion of the Bowie-Dick test cycle, the card provides immediate validation of the air removal process. The test card can then be retained as a permanent record of the cycle parameters, date, and test results.
