Using the EOGas 4 sterilizer
How EOGas 4 works
The sterilization bag and its components
The key feature of EO-flexible chamber system is the sterilization bag. The bag is the sterilization chamber. It keeps the use of gas at a minimum while ensuring the highest possible concentration.
The loaded sterilization bag is connected to the gas management system. This will extract most of the air from the bag while the sterilant is released. The opposite will happen once sterilization has been achieved. This process ensures a high gas concentration while minimizing the use of gas.
The load and the 17.6g EtO cartridge are placed in the sterilization bag. Standard sterility indicators (BIs) are used to ensure cycle success.
