Load Release

The Load Release products provide you the assurance that the correct conditions required for effective sterilization have been achieved in the chamber.

Overview

By utilizing a process challenge device (PCD) in your sterilizer – such as our Helix tests, biological indicators and test packs – you can rest assured that the conditions required for proper sterilization of the most difficult instruments and sets are being achieved, providing a snapshot of the conditions inside the sterilizer prior to releasing the load.

Product Ranges

Load Release for Steam

Helix Test 134°C, 3.5, 4, 5.3 and 7 min. Steam

Assurance to the user that maximum cycle parameters have been achieved to release the load.

Overview

The Getinge Assured Helix Test verifies air removal, steam penetration, exposure levels and deep vacuum achievement necessary for the sterilization of hollow lumen instruments. The test is designed to be used in each sterilization cycle as an independent control device.

The Getinge Assured Helix Test is a reusable device accompanied with single use chemical indicator strips. The indicator strips will change color from pink to black when exposed to appropriate steam sterilization conditions. The adhesive indicator strips can be used for record keeping.
