Bowie Dick consists of 3cm wad of paper with sterilisation indicator sheet in the middle.
Steam penetration contains an indicator that changes colour when steam penetration is satisfactory.
Simply record daily measurements in an autoclave log book for easy audit reference.

This test validates the vacuum and steam penetration of the cycle and is only required for vacuum sterilisers (Type S & Type B). It is not performed on a non-vacuum Type N steriliser.
The test is performed to ensure that the steam penetration of the cycle is efficient when processing wrapped or hollow loads.
This is achieved by validating that air and/or non-condensable gases in the chamber that impair sterilisation have been removed sufficiently by the vacuum stage of the cycle.
With air and/or non-condensable gases removed, the steam can then penetrate the entire load rapidly and evenly
