Ethylene Oxide (EO) Sterilization of Medical Products: The Basics
This will review how EO sterilizes, basic factors affecting sterilization, calculating the D value, Biological Indicators, the processing steps, EO residuals, and product release in a practical manner.
Many companies are using EO to achieve product sterility. Whether EO sterilization is performed in-house or with a contract sterilizer the product manufacturer must be informed as to how the process works.
ANSI/AAMI/ISO 11135 defines the requirements and standard practices for use of EO as an industrial sterilant. This presentation will review how EO sterilizes, basic factors affecting sterilization, calculating the D value, Biological Indicators, the processing steps, EO residuals, and product release in a practical manner so the product manufacturer can better understand the application of EO Sterilization and the ANSI/AAMI/ISO 11135.
Areas Covered in the Seminar:
- How does EO sterilize
- Basic factors affecting sterilization
