The killing efficacy of ethylene oxide (EO) makes it the ideal method for sterilizing medical devices. However, it is also hazardous to health when it comes to direct contact with people.
In order to ensure safety of the personnel, system operators have an obligation to take appropriate technical and work organization measures (e.g., turn on warning lights, ventilation, interlocking mechanisms) if the EO concentration in working areas is too high. Therefore, continuous recording or measurement of the EO concentration in the operating areas of the EO sterilization system is not only critical, but also necessary to comply with the provisions for occupational safety.
We offer monitoring systems so that you are able to meet the increasing requirements for the control of EO concentration levels in working areas.
We provide you with assistance to develop the optimal safety concept.
When the EO limit is exceeded, safety mechanisms (e.g., fan) are automatically activated.
