The SteamSpy is an electronic Bowie-Dick test that is permanently integrated into the steam sterilizer and is program-controlled. The test results are shown in the cycle report. It also acts as a continuous cycle control that you can never forget. The SteamSpy meets the requirements of DIN EN ISO 11140 and is a recognized alternative to the Bowie-Dick test. Its conformity with the standard has been certified by an independent, external testing laboratory.
SteamSpy comprises a test body permanently installed in the chamber that simulates a lumened surgical instrument and a measuring device attached to the outer chamber wall. Its design enables the effectiveness of steam penetration, both in cavities and in porous material, to be verified. The steam penetration determined by the measurement system is continuously evaluated during the running sterilization program. A warning appears in the event of a failure. The result is prominently displayed in the cycle report.
