Comparing EO and VPA sterilization - Article published by Medical Design and Outsourcing
As medtech advances, device makers need to consider sterilization methods that won’t compromise electronics, drugs or biologics.
The medical device industry has undergone an impressive transformation over the last several years, resulting in new and innovative devices and solutions. As companies continue to innovate, they are finding that commonly used sterilization methods impose limitations in terms of efficacy, quality or production processes of many of the newer device components (electronics), coatings (drug), or contents (drugs or biologics). New approaches have the potential to overcome the constraints of legacy sterilization methods.
