Tips for buying Ethylene Oxide Sterilizer

  1. Before purchasing a sterilizer, facilities need to examine their existing protocols for sterilization/reprocessing, as well as their current and future needs. EtO is one of four sterilization methods that are available for medical devices. The other three are: pressurized steam, gas plasma, and liquid germicides. Each method has its own limitations.
  2. The recommendations for EtO sterilization mainly relate to safety issues, since this type of sterilization is a well-established technology.
  3. All doors of sterilizing units should have a locking system to prevent the door from being opened before the cycle is completed and posing a risk of EtO exposure. Dedicated exhaust and ventilation systems should be carefully designed to avoid personnel exposure. Sterilizers should be placed in isolated, well-ventilated areas with controlled access. Exposures should be well below the permissible exposure limit of 1ppm, with sufficient engineering controls and proper work techniques.
  4. Users should be notified by audible alarms of cycle completion and any system faults. To ensure proper sterilization, a recorder should document the pressure and temperature during the cycle as it proceeds through each phase.
  5. Exhaust lines should be local and lead directly from the sterilizer door to an exhaust drain and/or outside. The ventilation system should discharge air from the space to the outdoors.
  6. These units have larger chambers than gas plasma sterilizers and can therefore process more items at once, but they require a longer cycle time and 10 to 16 hours of aeration after processing to eliminate toxic residues from sterilized items. This can result in the removal of sterilized items from use for up to 24 hours, and may necessitate the purchase of additional inventory to meet the demands of the facility.
  7. Some regions have enacted regulations to restrict emissions from EtO sterilizers because of the potentially damaging effects of EtO on the environment. Facilities that are affected by these regulations, may find the use of an EtO-emission abatement system most desirable. In some of these systems a process called catalytic oxidation break down EtO into CO2 and water. Other emission-abatement systems use a scrubbing method.
  8. Some systems can effectively reduce emissions by up to 99.9% -allowing those who wish to continue using EtO sterilizers to comply even with the strictest regulations.
