Sterility maintenance study: dynamic evaluation of sterilised rigid containers and wrapped instruments to prevent bacterial ingress.
This is a head to head comparison of rigid containers and package wrapped in HALYARD* sterilisation wrap using a bio aerosol.

Sterilisation Wrap or Rigid Sterilisation Containers?

A recent study showed – after terminal sterilisation – that 100%1 of the sterilised packaged wrapped in HALYARD* sterilisation wrap remained sterile whereas 87%1 of rigid sterilisation containers did not maintain sterility through transport and handling.

Take into account this information before you make a decision.

A HALYARD* Sales Rep can assist you in an analysis of your Central Sterile Processing Department needs to gather information in the following key areas:

  • Inaccurate cross references
  • Unaccounted for costs (overhead/utilities, OR downtime)
  • Competitive analytics
