ETO Sterilisation

I recently invested in an Ethylene Oxide Sterilizer. This is a low temperature method of sterilization that uses ethylene oxide gas to sterilize items that cannot be sterilized using heat. We use it to sterilize our plastics and also when we have the time, our handpieces. Tubings, infusion sets, plastic sleeves for covering exposed surfaces, gauze,cotton , sharp instruments can all be sterilized using ETO sterilization. It is a rather large unit and needs plenty of space and ventilation but should be good investment for larger practices that have use a high volume of disposables/plastics.(Rujikon ETO Sterilsers)
