Handling

At the end of the cycle, remove the Stericop Bowie & Dick Test from the sterilizer chamber. Grasp the indicator sheet by the supernatant and simply pull the indicator sheet out of the test package. Check the indicator sheet for complete color change to pink.

The sterilization process creates a reference on the supernatant which can be compared with the indicator field by simply turning it over.
