Sterilization Products for Sterilizers

One of the cheapest and easiest methods of destroying all living organisms on an item is steam sterilization, where instrumentation trays and packages are placed in a chamber filled with 250–270 °F (121–132 °C) of steam, killing all microorganisms.

While steam is a vital factor in the efficiency of the sterilization process, the packaging of the items is pivotal to achieve a cost-efficient autoclave cycle.

This packaging has specific purposes such as:

  • to allow the removal of air and, therefore, the penetration and contact of the sterilizing agents with the surface of the object to be treated
  • to reduce the risk of contamination of the sterilized material when the sterile package is open
  • to preserve the sterility of the treated material until it is used
  • to be free of toxicity
  • to be practical, convenient and economical

Sterile processing is instrumental to patient safety, infection prevention and control. Professionals need solutions that allow for, verify and maintain the sterility of reusable medical devices until used. MDS Associates offers a portfolio of sterilization wrap and pouches to meet your sterilization packaging and assurance needs.

CSR wraps from Dynarex® are a disposable non-woven fabric wrap ideal for steam and gas sterilization and is tear resistant. These CSR Wraps repel water, blood, iodine, alcohol and saline, making them an effective bacterial barrier against airborne and water-borne contamination.

Sterilization Pouches - Manufactured from medical-grade paper, with extra wide chevron, Sterilization Pouches have a blue tinted cover making it easy to detect contamination. The sterilization pouches are self-sealing and have built-in color-changing indicators to assure proper sterilization.
