ebro EBI 16 – Bowie Dick Test Data Logger

Test Kit to confirm satisfactory sterilization in the medical field

Ensuring proper sterilization of equipment in hospitals, veterinary and dental clinics is critical in patient care. Ebro offers a test suite that records the temperature of all parts of the autoclave and this EBI 16-SL 1520 kit is specially designed for routine testing of sterilizers using this device. Bowie-Dick data logger according to industry standard EN 285/ISO 17665.

Together with the evaluation software, the new EBI 16 data logger forms an easy-to-use and reliable electronic measurement system. Routine control of all steam sterilizers can be performed using an alternative Bowie Dick electronic tester based on DIN EN ISO 11140-4. In addition to considering steam penetration, the relevant sterilization parameters are controlled.

  • Reliable: clear, repeatable measurement results
  • Accurate: high resolution graphic display
  • Security: recording and storing digital data
  • Easy: use and rate
