EILIGPLAZ Sterilization process
Hydrogen peroxide sterilization, also known as hydrogen peroxide gas sterilization, is a low temperature sterilization process commonly used to sterilize heat-sensitive devices. A hydrogen peroxide sterilization cycle typically requires less time than alternative forms of sterilization, such as ethylene oxide sterilization.
A hydrogen peroxide sterilization process involves H2O2 vapor filling the sterilizer chamber, contacting and sterilizing exposed device surfaces.
Hydrogen peroxide sterilization is also known as vaporized hydrogen peroxide sterilization or VHP. Healthcare facilities more commonly choose vaporized hydrogen peroxide sterilization over ethylene oxide sterilization as their low temperature sterilization system.
Hydrogen peroxide is most often used for plasma cleaning and sterilization. Hydrogen Peroxide in liquid form is most known for its cleaning or bleaching properties.
HYDROGEN PEROXIDE STERILIZATION PROCESS
· The vaporized hydrogen peroxide sterilization process is as follows:
· The items to be sterilized are placed in the sterilization chamber, the chamber is closed, and a vacuum is drawn.
· When an aqueous solution (55%+ 5) of Hydrogen Peroxide is dosed into a plasma machine vacuum chamber it evaporates and disperses and turns it into gas.
· Due to the disinfecting properties of Hydrogen Peroxide it kills all bacteria in the chamber and on the surface thus completing one phase of the Hydrogen Peroxide plasma sterilization process.
· After a period of hydrogen peroxide diffusion, the pressure is reduced in the chamber. The formation of a low-temperature gas plasma is initiated by applying radio frequency (RF) energy to create an electric field. Once the pressure inside the chamber drops more and the particles become excited enough to ionize, the hydrogen peroxide gas turns into hydrogen peroxide plasma. During this part of the sterilization, the hydrogen peroxide plasma breaks down all the genetic material of any bacteria into smaller molecules, eradicating them and any harmful by-products.
· The combined use of hydrogen peroxide vapor and plasma are safely and rapidly sterilize most medical instruments and materials without leaving toxic residues. Following the reaction, the activated components lose their high energy and recombine to form primarily oxygen, water and other non-toxic by-products.
· When the process is complete, the vacuum is release and the chamber is returned to atmospheric pressure. The items within chamber are sterilized and ready for use.
