BD, a leading global medical technology company, today announced a new line of surgical instrument sterilization containers that are validated for the latest low-temperature sterilization processes.
The Genesis™ Low Temperature Rigid Sterilization Container System is validated for newer low-temperature sterilization processes and systems from market-leading sterilizer manufacturers, including the V-PRO® Low Temperature Sterilization Systems from STERIS and STERRAD® Systems from Advanced Sterilization Products (ASP). Low-temperature sterilization is a fast-growing trend in sterile processing and is used for instrumentation that cannot withstand the high-temperature and moisture present in traditional steam sterilization practices.
Jim Leitl, worldwide vice president and general manager for Infection Prevention, V. Mueller and Interventional Specialties at BD said, Our new containers have the same trusted functionality that our customers in the sterile processing department have come to expect, but they have been validated for today’s latest low-temperature processes. We will continue to extend our leadership in sterilization containers and surgical instrumentation through innovations that positively impact both clinical and financial outcomes.
