SteriSet containers are reusable sterilizing containers made of metal. They are designed to hold operating theater instruments and/or textiles during the vacuum-steam sterilization process and for maintaining sterility during storage and transport under proper hospital conditions.
The double lid design
Besides from the requirement to permit the effective sterili zation of the packaged devices, a sterile packaging system shall provide suitimable protection to avoid the ingress of micro organism and such maintain sterility – once it was reached – until the point of use.SteriSet containers do therefore introduce the „protective lid design“: a unperforated outer lid protects the real biobarriers (perforated ﬁ lter areas or valves) against harmful inﬂuence during transport and handling procedures – which might otherwise endanger the safety of maintenance of sterility:
Other than in case of the normal type of SteriSet, where inner- and outer lid are handled as one piece when opening the con tainer, the ”S”-type allows opening in two steps: after opening of the outer, unperforated lid the now exposed, clean inner lid is still sealed to the bottom. This dust free inner lid may now be taken off as a second step without risk to whirl up sedi mented particles and/or contaminate the surrounding atmosphere.
Disposable ”Tamper seals” or ThermoLoc?
Filters or sterilization valves?
SteriSet containers are available in either the single-use paper filter version or the patented reusable valve version. The SteriSet containers with a valve are automatically controlled by means of a pressure change in the sterilizer and require no additional materials. Nothing can be forgotten (filter change, filter spacing), time and money are saved and waste is reduced.
