For items that cannot be sterilized in steam sterilizers— such as flexible endoscopes — sterile processing departments need to find the right combination of low-temperature sterilization solutions. Sterilization professionals need to balance the demands to manage costs, comply with manufacturers' IFUs, and effectively sterilize critical instruments. Ethylene Oxide (EO or EtO) is a proven option, known to be gentle on instruments and highly penetrating. It's ideal for processing complex devices such as long-lumen flexible endoscopes.
EO helps you balance your budget while retaining a high level of performance. It has a low initial cost, low cost per cycle and low annual cost to run and maintain. And (EtO) sterilization is gentle on your high-value devices and equipment, which may help to extend device life and reduce the need for costly repairs or replacement.
3M™ Attest™ Rapid Readout Biological Indicators for Ethylene Oxide (EtO) sterilization monitoring give you the data you need to document your quality control processes. In addition to biological indicators, chemical indicators, and record keeping tools, 3M can help you monitor all critical aspects of your low-temperature sterilization processes.
