Inventor of VPA technology and current Director of Research & Development and Operations with REVOX Sterilization Solutions, Mason Schwartz, discusses the science behind VPA.
 

1. The VPA sterilization process has a distinct advantage over many other sterilization solutions because it is executed at room temperature. From a chemistry standpoint, why is this important?

Learn about the benefits of VPA over traditional sterilization methods from the inventor of the VPA technology:
  • Sterilize products without exposing them to high temperatures, moisture, radiation or hazardous chemical by-products
  • Gently sterilize all surfaces of a product within its package, leaving behind no residuals
  • VPA breaks down into relatively harmless, natural occurring substances: water, oxygen and carbon dioxide
  • Safe and easy to install, the VPA system adds efficient in-line sterilization to your manufacturing process

On-site placement and operation of the REVOX vaporized peracetic acid (VPA) sterilization units are safe, simple, and efficient. 

Available large-capacity units can eliminate inefficiencies associated with off-site processing, such as long turnaround times, external quality processes, and the need to maintain large inventories. In-production-line - or JUST-IN-TIME STERILIZATION™ - may further optimize your efficiencies.

Medical manufacturers often find the sterilization process to be a big production and logistical challenge. Long lead times, rigid batch amounts, and log-jams at the sterilization contractor can bring production to a halt and leave the customer dissatisfied. So, a sterilization solution that lets manufacturers avoid these problems stands as a big leap forward.

That’s where REVOX® Sterilization Solutions’ unique capabilities come in.
