However, it is recommended to comply with the provisions of the various manufacturers who are required to specify the sterilization methods, without being confused by trade names or a specific brand of sterilizers; the effects of the hydrogen peroxide plasma gas sterilization technology are, as for steam and ethylene oxide, the same for all, without prejudice to compliance with the EC standards specifically drawn up so that the responsibility for placing on the market is delegated to institutes approved and authorized to carry out this function.


We would like to inform you that we have been marketing these devices for about ten years and we have never had any reports from our user customers regarding damage found on the sterilized material.

Furthermore, it should be noted that the guarantee of recognition of any damage to the processed instruments caused by the sterilization treatment of the proposed equipment is required in the event that such damage occurs despite the reprocessing instructions being respected and the equipment being used appropriately according to the instructions for use provided. As regards the operations to be carried out before sterilization, the instructions in the CSSD WS310.2-2009 section 2: work standard on disinfection and sterilization must be followed.


Follow the instructions for use of the medical device and refer to the VitroSteril User Guide for the information to be followed before sterilizing the devices in VitroSteril sterilizers. Always contact the medical device manufacturer for the most up-to-date sterilization information and instructions.
