Conduct Research

Sterilization, as a specific discipline, has been with us for approximately 120 years, since the invention of the steam autoclave by Charles Chamberland in 1879. Since that time, we have seen progressive refinement in steam sterilizers: from the early, manually operated equipment to modern...

...with the final sterility assurance level (SAL) achieved by the cycle.2 Since gas-diffusion sterilization can be integrated into the manufacturing environment, the products can be continuously processed at the same conditions under which they were manufactured, thus avoiding climatic variations...

...are ethylene oxide (EtO), gamma irradiation, steam sterilization, and e-beam processing. All offer different advantages to medical manufacturers seeking to rid their devices of biological contaminants. Sterilization by EtO gas is in widespread use among device manufacturers. EtO is a toxic gas...

Medical Device & Diagnostic Industry Industrial sterilization is a dynamic field. In addition to the two most common techniques, EtO and gamma radiation, electron-beam (E-beam) and steam processes also are used by some medical device manufacturers and contract sterilizers. Several emerging...

...process. The four phases are: (1) air removal, (2) steam injection and conditioning dwell, (3) EtO injection and gas dwell, and (4) gas purge and air inbleed. Mid-infrared gas spectrometer measures EtO and water vapor during sterilization. Photo courtesy Spectros Instruments, Inc. (Whitinsville, MA...

...with sterilization cycle development is directed toward the ultimate safety of the processed device. Risk can be considered the probability of occurrence of a hazard causing harm; safety, the freedom from unacceptable risk. A 10 6 sterility assurance level (SAL; the probability of one nonsterile unit...

If a bioburden approach were applied to steam sterilization, as it is toward radiation methods (without looking at thermophiles, thermotolerant spores, and anaerobes), low-temperature steam (e.g., 90 -100 C) would likely be sufficient to achieve 10 -6 sterility assurance for ultraclean (low bioburden...

...while the remaining 10% is held by steam and electron beam (E-beam). When using any of these four sterilization methods, manufacturers must validate the process in order to provide documented evidence that it will consistently yield the desired sterility and sterility assurance level (SAL). Upon...

�primarily gamma�as well as some saturated steam. This was mainly due to the proliferation of disposable medical devices. For the most part, they were constructed of heat-labile plastics and required a low-temperature (below 121.1�C) sterilization process. This trend continues...

...experts, ethylene oxide (EtO) is used for more than half of all medical devices sterilized. Despite its popularity, EtO sterilization, as it is performed by most companies today, has one major disadvantage when compared with steam or radiation methods. Unlike these methods, EtO typically involves...
