Clinical Large Porous Load Steam Steriliser: Thermometric Test for a Full Load

Testing Clinical Large Porous Load Steam Sterilisers

Thermometric Test for a Full Load

This test is performed to identify that both the chamber and load, after air removal, are achieving the sterilisation conditions of the appropriate sterilisation band, using a full process load.

This test should only be undertaken by a competent and trained person.

The test is carried out by using a standard test pack within a full process load and monitoring conditions within the load and chamber using calibrated measurement equipment.
