The market of the ethylenoxid(ETO) sterilization is vast because this gas has very little interaction with raw materials used in the medical applications.
In comparison, the sterilization gamma does not allow the processing of certain materials because of its action of the radiation on molecules in particular plastics; or steam sterilization which, by the use of the heat, prevents any sterilization of heat-sensible materials.
Even, the process plasma damages heat-sensible and reusable equipments.
The medical market
It is the main market for the ETO. The moderate cost of the sterilization and the flexibility of the process allow the optimization of cost.
Main application: Compress, Sets of care, Pacemaker and catheter, feeding tubes.
The pharmaceutical market
In perpetual evolution, this market is more and more coming towards applications where the specific composition requires the ETO sterilization. At present the tendency of devices with a medicinal coating imposes sterilization cycle with special parameters.
Medistri is able to develop cycles with very low temperatures, which has no secondary effect on the coating and to minimize the rate of residue while guaranteeing a high sterilization level.
The hospital market
Less and less practiced internally by hospital, the sterilization of the reusable devices is always a common subject for heat-sensible products (optics, fibers, lenses…). Medistri offers this service to hospitals, clinical and other medical specialists.
The possibility of realizing fast cycles allows a more flexible management of equipments, while guaranteeing a high level of sterilization.
