Crile terminals are test specimens that are used for the legally prescribed validation of a washer-disinfector. For this purpose, this Crile artery clamp is soiled with heparinized sheep's blood. Contaminated in this way, it passes through the cleaning cycle as an indicator. Subsequently, the commissioned and certified validation service sends it to an accredited analysis laboratory. The latter carries out an evaluation of the residual protein determination, which in turn is included in the validation report.
