What are the advantages of the ethylene oxide sterilization method?

  • Highly effective as fungicide and antimicrobial.
  • Best to sterilize biomedical heat-sensitive materials (which are very expensive). Since the ethylene oxide sterilize at low temperatures, the non – deformation or destruction of the elements is guaranteed.
  • Good diffusion of the gas through the sheets and parts of difficult access of the elements to be sterilized.
  • Elements that otherwise should be discarded, can be sterilized and used again improving the cost-process relation.
  • The ethylene oxide can be neutralized with water.
