What is the difference between Steris and Sterrad?
The results of the study demonstrate that the STERRAD® System, which uses a gas plasma phase to dissociate hydrogen peroxide during the sterilization cycle, had lower hydrogen peroxide emissions compared to STERIS V-PRO® sterilizers, which only passes hydrogen peroxide through a catalytic converter.
What is Sterrad sterilization?
STERRAD® Systems, also referred to as Vaporized Hydrogen Peroxide Gas Plasma Sterilization, utilize an exclusive gas plasma technology to directly remove hydrogen peroxide residual from the chamber and instruments.
Is Sterrad and vpro the same?
In a head-to-head comparison of V-PRO vs. STERRAD, it’s clear that V-PRO beats STERRAD with a one-two punch in both throughput and material compatibility. This winning combination allows your Sterile Processing Department (SPD) to process most instruments faster to optimize your workflow and productivity.
Is Sterrad steam sterilization?
The SteriTite containers are validated for use in STERRAD systems, steam and ethylene oxide facilitating the standardisation of the instrument packaging throughout the facility. The STERRAD 100NX is the leading low-temperature sterilisation system, and the only system with hydrogen peroxide gas plasma technology.
Is Sterrad an autoclave?
The STERRAD 100NX™ System with ALLClear™ Technology is a low temperature sterilizer that offers: 4 cycles for sterilization of medical devices, including single channel flexible scopes. Upgradeable technology as innovations come available.
What is the difference between autoclave and sterilizer?
An autoclave sterilizer’s purpose is to kill all forms of life on the surface of an object like fungi, spores, viruses and bacteria. Autoclaves use only steam to disinfect, while other sterilizers might use high pressure, irritation, chemicals, filtration or a combination of processes to sterilize a surface.
