Are You Leak Testing Your Sterilizer?

Updated: Mar 10, 2022


Light bulb - Thought of the Week

Leak testing your sterilizer is not the same as running a Bowie/Dick test. A leak test validates the structural integrity of your sterilizer chamber and plumbing systems. The manufacturer of your sterilizer determines how often you run a leak test. Steris recommends that a leak test be run weekly (https://ww1.steris.com/onbDocs/V436/0/1229418.pdf). Check your manufacturers' IFU to make sure you are running all of the proper tests for your sterilizer.
