Establishing Specification Limits for Ethylene Oxide Sterilization

Learn how to establish specification limits for ethylene oxide sterilization from STERIS expert, Carrie Clark, Senior Director, Gas Technology & Labs.

This TechTalk outlines the key parameters that need to be monitored and recorded, together with guidance on setting reasonable tolerances for these parameters to avoid unnecessary process deviations.

Additional considerations will be given to the natural variation in these parameters during the many stages of an ethylene oxide process, including the importance of the appropriate use of significant digits in process specifications and recorded values.
