User Process:

  • Placed directly into an otherwise empty steam sterilizer chamber and does not require a retaining device.
  • Optional tie is provided for suspension of the DART test.
  • During processing, steam must displace the air through the blue heat sink and then within the restricted transparent chamber of the chemical indicator.
  • Results are immediately visible through the clear vial.
  • A uniform color change from yellow to black indicates that all the air was removed and replaced by steam.
  • When the test is completed, simply snap off the window, slide out the chemical indicator, and record the results.
