Testsets and PCDs

Process challenge device (PCD)

Used in LTSF-sterilizers to test sufficient formaldehyde penetration. The indicator strip is placed in the test device. The test device is sterilized together with other packages and containers. Compact-PCDs can also be used for this application


Process Monitoring Systems (PMS) are process challenge devices that are used to test sterilizers according to a defined standard, called type tests. A PMS checks if a sterilizer fulfils the requirements of the standard (e.g. BD Test according to EN 285 and Helix-Test according to EN 867-5). PMS are used for routine monitoring of sterilizer process parameters to proof insufficient air removal, leakage or non condensable gases (NCG). The gke Steri-Record
