What are the disadvantages of the ethylene oxide sterilization method?

  • It is a slow process since in addition to the sterilization time it must be taken into account the ventilation time of the sterilized elements. The ventilation time may depend on the type of the sterilized material (metal, glass, plastic, etc.) and on whether they will be used intra-corporal or extra-corporal.
  • A bad handling may cause adverse health effects.
