Ethylene oxide (EO) is a simple chemical compound commonly used for gaseous sterilisation of disposable healthcare products.
A wide range of materials and components used in the manufacture of these products may undergo ethylene oxide sterilisation in their final breathable packaging configuration.
Ethylene oxide sterilisation is ideal for custom procedure kits and cellulose, as well as plastic products that may exhibit discoloration with irradiation.
It is also suitable for devices manufactured from materials whose physical properties degrade with heat or irradiation and items not compatible with other methods of sterilisation.
Steris EO TechTeam group is committed to assisting clients in the ethylene oxide sterilisation validation process.
The TechTeam experts develop and optimise the EO sterilisation processes to assure clients receive the most complete, cost-effective and highest quality services available.
