  • Medical Device Link . Recent Developments in Sterilization Technology
    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
  • Medical Device Link . An Introduction to Gas-Diffusion Sterilization
    Medical Device & Diagnostic Industry Gas-diffusion technology offers device manufacturers a cost-effective and environmentally safe alternative to traditional in-house EtO sterilization. In recent years, in large part because of stringent new environmental regulations, the use of ethylene oxide
  • Medical Device Link . Sterilization Firms Strive to Cut Costs, Turnaround Times
    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 Link . Tracking Trends in Industrial Sterilization The industrial sterilization market will grow in the next few years and will see the emergence of low-temperature oxidative technologies.
    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

    are monitored with chemical and biological indicators within the instrument load. A biological indicator (BI) is "a device consisting of a known number of microorganisms, of known resistance to the mode of sterilization, in or on a carrier and enclosed in a protective package. " After sterilization, the BIs

    to both the healthcare providers and device manufacturers that perform EtO sterilization. Because it is more easily controlled, radiation sterilization lends itself to parametric release based on chemical dosimeters. For steam sterilization, healthcare providers generally use commercially available

    ' laboratories using biological indicator evaluator resistometer (BIER) vessels. Designed for the calibration of biological indicators (BIs), these vessels operate within the narrow control windows defined in the domestic and international standards on EtO sterilization.3,4 The interrelated problems

    radiation, steam, and ethylene oxide (EtO) gas, are currently used for sterilizing medical products. EtO gas is especially useful for materials that are unable to withstand the processing effects of high temperatures and radiation. Sterilization using EtO gas is a comprehensive procedure requiring rigid
  • Medical Device Link .
    Steam sterilizers offer a range of cycle functions to address any standard steam sterilization application. The Series 100HC sterilizers come with software that allows cycles to be configured for specific processing needs and customized cycle names. The units are shipped from the factory with 19
