HT Helix Test Device and Strips

HT Helix Test Device and Strips
Category: Sterilization

Quick Overview

Release lumen containing loads with confidence! The HT Helix PCD monitors the efficacy of the steam sterilization process by presenting an equivalent challenge to a Biological Indicator in the standard AAMI towel pack. HT Helix Tests are available for Large Chamber sterilizers, Table-Top sterilizers and as a Bowie & Dick Test.



  • Simulates complex lumen containing instruments

  • Pass result ensures adequate sterilizant penetration into difficult to sterilze instruments 

  • Stable indicator ink result will not revert after processing

  • Multi-use device lasts 250 cycles, reduces waste, labor and cost


HTTM Helix Large Chamber PCD with Onix Strips - Cat. No. 26942100


The HT Helix Large Chamber PCD monitors the efficacy of the steam sterilization process by presenting an equivalent challenge to a Biological Indicator in the standard AAMI towel pack. The HT Helix Large Chamber PCD is designed for use as a hollow load release process challenge test for hospital-size sterilizers in saturated steam cycles 121°C (gravity), 132°C - 4 min, 134°C - 3.5 min, 135°C - 3 min and 134°C - 18 min cycles. 


The HT Helix Large Chamber PCD is sold as 1 reusable test device with 250 OnixTM process challenge indicator strips. 


The Helix Large Chamber PCD offers full compliance with EN 867-5.


HTTM Helix Table Top PCD with Test Strips - Cat. No. 26942200


The HT Helix Table Top PCD monitors the efficacy of the steam sterilization process by presenting an equivalent challenge to a Biological Indicator in the standard AAMI towel pack. The HT Helix Table Top PCD is designed for use as a hollow load release process challenge test for small sterilizers in saturated steam cycles between 126°C to 137°C.


The HT Helix Table Top PCD is sold as 1 reusable test device with 250 OnixTM process challenge indicator strips. 


The HT Helix Table Top PCD offers full compliance with EN 867-5.


HTTM Helix Bowie & Dick Test with Test Strips - Cat. No. 26942300



  • Detects sterilizer malfunctions according to Bowie-Dick protocol

  • Temperature range: 134C, 3.5 minutes

  • Stable White to Black indicator color change, can be maintained for record keeping 

  • Multi-use device reduces waste, labor and cost 


HTTM Helix Device


The HT Helix Large Chamber PCD is a re-useable capsule manufactured using a material that heats up and cools down quickly. The device simulates the internal channels of lumen instruments to present an adequate challenge for steam penetration and to ensure that the parameters of the cycle have been achieved for sterilizer testing.


OnixTM Strips


The strips are imprinted with an indicator ink that displays a clear, easy-to-read color change from white to black when all critical parameters for steam sterilization are achieved. This color change is a stable one that will not revert to its original unprocessed color; both pass and fail results are stable for years after processing.  In addition, this new product is an environmentally friendly recyclable strip that is laminate and latex free.
