Re: Decloaker

Hi Amy,

My decloaker does not have a temperature guage - but a pressure guage....or
is that what you meant?  You can get control strips from BioCare that shows
that you have reached a certain temperature - alot like what the autoclave
tape was used for.
I just had a recent CAP inspection and that did not come up.  My patient
and control is on the same slide - if my control did not work one of the
things I might suspect is a problem with my retrieval.  I also use a Black
& Decker vegetable steamer......that too has no temperature guage.
Interesting question.
