The Steritec EZTest is designed to provide the same resistance to steam as a 16-towel pack as defined by AAMI ST46. The objective is to simulate a biological indicator placed in a large hospital pack and sterilized.
Each disposable test pack contains an EZTest self-contained biological indicator and an Instant Readout Integrator card. These components are buried in a stack of porus material designed to create a known resistance to steam penetration.
The Test Pack was designed to function in a 132° C or 134° C pre-vacuum steam sterilizer.
The Instant Readout Integrator Card gives a prediction of the biological test outcome, especially helpful for hospital determinations regarding early release.
