Title
(EN) A METHOD OF STERILIZING AN ARTICLE AND CERTIFYING THE ARTICLE AS STERILE
(FR) METHODE DE STERILISATION D'UN ARTICLE GARANTISSANT L'ASEPSIE DUDIT ARTICLE
Abstract
(EN)
The present invention relates to a process for sterilization of medical instruments by concentrating a sterilant such as hydrogen peroxide inside of a sterilizer and sterilizing articles therewith. This concentrating process is monitored by determining the concentrations of water and peroxide in the chamber.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne une méthode de stérilisation d'instruments médicaux consistant à introduire un agent de stérilisation concentré, tel que le peroxyde d'hydrogène, dans un stérilisateur, et à utiliser ledit stérilisateur pour stériliser des articles. On contrôle ce procédé de concentration en déterminant les concentrations en eau et en peroxyde dans la chambre.
