Product description

Helix Test is ideal to evaluate the penetration capacity of steam inside hollow bodies and consists of a tube made of Teflon® open at one end. At the end of this is a container fitted with a hermetically sealed screw cap in which a multi-variable chemical indicator is housed. The chemical indicator housed in the container only turns correctly when the autoclave is able to completely remove the air in the chamber and steam can penetrate the entire length of the cannula.

Conforms to EN ISO 11140-1 Class 2 indicator.

The Helix Test System is a practical kit containing everything you need to perform 250 vapour penetration tests.

Each package contains 1 Helix cannula, 250 chemical indicator strips and instructions for use.


Range of use: 134° C for 3.5 minutes or 121° C for 15 minutes.

2. Close the capsule
