Choosing the right sterilization product

Sterilization products should be evaluated based on the following criteria:

Characteristic

  • Barrier effectiveness
  • Penetrability
  • Aeration
  • Drapeability
  • Sizing
  • Puncture resistance
  • Tear strength
  • Transparency

Goal

  • Prevents microbial penetration, maintain sterility of contents and prevent penetration of liquids
  • Allows steam, sterilizing gases or plasmas to penetrate
  • Allows aeration post-sterilization (i.e., allows ethylene oxide to dissipate)
  • Conforms to equipment pack contours smoothly and closely
  • Offers sizes to accommodate items of any shape and size
  • Resists punctures by sharp instruments or other contents
  • Resists tears
  • Allows verification of contents before opening
