3M™ Steri-Vac™ Sterilizers/Aerators use 100 percent ethylene oxide (EO) in single-dose canisters to safely, effectively, and economically sterilize heat or moisture sensitive equipment, representing the “gold standard” for low temperature sterilization for over 50 years. In fact, over half of all heat or moisture sensitive devices (including sterile single-use devices) are sterilized with ethylene oxide. Within the sterilization chamber, ethylene oxide is converted to a highly penetrating gas, offering superior efficacy for complex instrumentation, such as flexible endoscopes. Steri-Vac Sterilizer Systems, backed by 3M service and support, can help meet the challenges of modern sterile processing departments. More information at http://go.3M.com/lowtemp.
