Medline – Gemini

Medline’s Gemini wrap is the next generation of sterilization wrap. In an independent, side-by-side strength test, Gemini wrap was shown to have greater material strength to resist punctures and tears compared to the sterilization wrap of the next closest competitor. It is constructed with two sheets of 100 percent polypropylene fused together to provide greater strength and improved efficiency. This wrap comes in five weight grades from lightweight to heavyweight, and is easy to handle and fold. It can also be used with all major sterilization cycles, including pre-vacuum steam cycles, gravity steam cycles, ethylene oxide (ETO) sterilization, STERRAD and STERIS sterilization. Gemini wrap is also available in a unique dual-color wrap with a pink-colored sheet on the outside and blue on the inside, which can help differentiate between instrument sets.
