Improvements in Surgical and Medical Device Sterilization

Recorded for Qmed and MD+DI on:
11:00 am EST, October 14, 2020

In this webinar, engineers working on sterilization devices can learn how the materials used to vent and filter within the sterilization container have a critical impact on the performance and reliability of the container. Disposable filters that are found in many sterilization containers can be easily damaged or inserted incorrectly, which jeopardizes equipment sterility and increases infection risks. Take a tour of innovative and reusable medical-grade materials that can be designed into sterilization containers, and the science behind how they achieve this increased performance.

What you will learn in this webinar:

  • Understand the science behind the venting & filtration occurring in a sterilization container
  • Learn how traditional disposable materials undermine the performance of the container
  • Take a tour of eco-friendly and efficient materials that can be used to replace these traditional materials, and how they work
