What is Steam Sterilisation?

Steam sterilisation is a widely used method of sterilisation for medical devices in hospitals, pharmaceutical companies and device companies. Steam sterilisation works by placing products in a machine called an autoclave and exposing them to pressurised steam at high temperatures in order to destroy viable microorganisms. The process components of steam sterilisation provide the benefit of being non-toxic which reduces the bio-compatibility issues of steam sterilised products in comparison to those using ethylene oxide sterilisation. Additionally, the process is fast and delivers a high-level of sterility assurance.
