Vaporized Peracetic Acid (VPA) Materials Compatibility
Typical Material Sterilization Compatibility Challenges
With legacy sterilization methods such as gamma/E-beam irradiation, ethylene oxide (EO) gas sterilization, or steam autoclave, materials used in the end product must be chosen carefully to ensure compatibility with your sterilization process.
Many materials that may otherwise be ideal for optimal product design simply are not suitable with these common sterilization methods. This limits overall product innovation potential and, if it is not considered prior to product design, interferes with overall project progression, objectives, and product launch.
The REVOX Sterilization Solution
The REVOX sterilization process uses a proprietary peracetic acid (PAA) biocide delivered in a vapor form that gently sterilizes products with excellent material compatibility and low residuals. This, along with the room temperature sterilization process, allows the use of chemical and heat-sensitive materials that were once off-limits to innovative product development.
