Efficient sterilization in production of medical devices

The medical device industry produces patient solutions through products used to diagnose, prevent or treat medical conditions. Getinge supports the industry by designing and providing optimal sterilization processes and workflows.

Safe, reliable and contamination-free medical device production

Due to the nature of medical devices, they need to be sterilized to protect the patient’s health. The medical device industry therefore has stringent demands on their sterilization processes to prevent contamination from occurring. Sterilization equipment must be of high quality and follow all regulatory requirements and good manufacturing practice (GMP) guidelines.

A sterilization process must also deliver safe, reliable and repeatable results. Each process and cycle must follow the validated customer requirements while maximizing throughput to minimize cost.

Innovative sterilization for your process needs

Getinge supplies ethylene oxide (also known as EO or EtO) sterilization systems that provide faster, more reliable sterilization while protecting the integrity of products and packaging. Whether you prefer traditional methods or the innovative and time saving combination processes within the sterilizer, Getinge will help you find the best system for your production needs. 

A technology for terminal sterilization

Ethylene oxide (EO or EtO) can effectively sterilize at very low temperatures, making it the right choice for heat- and humidity-sensitive applications, including modern plastics and drug coated medical devices. Additionally, EO can penetrate wrapped and packaged goods, making it a leading technology for terminal sterilization.
