For highly efficacious low-temperature sterilization of medical devices, look no further than the 3M™ Steri-Vac™ EO Sterilizer/Aerator 100% Ethylene Oxide System.
You need to know your patients are safe from harmful microorganisms when their health is in your hands. Healthcare providers need to feel confident their instruments have been appropriately reprocessed before being used with the next patient. As we’ve seen with recent outbreaks, inadequate instrument reprocessing can mean the difference between life and death.
That’s why 3M is committed to a higher standard of patient care. And 3M™ Steri-Vac™ EO Sterilizer/Aerators are proof.
Ethylene oxide is a sterilant that effectively penetrates the complex geometries of medical devices you use every day. Designed to sterilize instruments too delicate for steam sterilizers, like flexible endoscopes, Steri-Vac EO sterilizers are gentle on devices, while effectively penetrating long, narrow lumens.
Steri-Vac EO sterilization uses 100 percent ethylene oxide and is cleared for use with single- or dual-channel rigid and flexible endoscopes. With documented excellent materials compatibility, EO is non-oxidizing and may reduce frequency/cost of repairs and extend the life of instruments.
This is 3M Science hard at work, helping you focus on what matters most.
