May Replaced By: A sterile product is one which is free of viable microorganisms. The International Standards for sterilization of medical devices ixo, when it is necessary to supply a sterile product item, that adventitious microbiological contamination of a medical device from all sources be minimized by all practical means.
BS EN ISO 11737-2:2009
Even so, product items produced under standard manufacturing conditions in accordance with the requirements for quality systems for medical devices may, prior to sterilization, have microorganisms on them, albeit in low numbers. Such product items are non-sterile. The purpose of sterilization processing oso to inactivate the microbiological contaminants and thereby transform the non-sterile items into sterile ones.
For a given treatment, the probability of survival is determined by the number and resistance of microorganisms and by the environment in which the organisms exist during treatment.
It 17137-2 that the sterility of any one item in a population of items subjected to sterilization processing cannot be guaranteed, and the sterility of the processed population of items has to be defined in terms of the probability of the existence of a non-sterile item in that population.
The ISO series of standards designates certain processes used in manufacture as ‘special’ if the results cannot be fully verified by subsequent inspection and testing of the product. Sterilization is an example of a special process because process efficacy cannot be verified by inspection and testing of the product. For this reason, sterilization processes have to be validated before use, the performance of the process monitored routinely and the equipment maintained.
International Standards specifying procedures for the validation and routine control of the processes used for sterilization of medical devices have been prepared. An element of this validation may consist of exposing medical izo to the sterilizing agent when the extent of treatment has been reduced relative to that which will be used in routine processing in order to provide a knowledge of the resistance to the agent of the microbial contamination as it occurs naturally on medical devices.
Subsequent to this exposure, medical devices are subjected individually to tests of sterility as described in this part of BS EN ISO An example of the use of such a test is in establishing a sterilizing dose for sterilization by radiation and for demonstrating the continued validity of this sterilization dose. It includes guidance on the techniques used and on practical 111737-2 of the requirements. It specifies the general criteria for tests of sterility on medical devices which have been exposed to a treatment with the sterilizing agent that is a fraction of the specified sterilization process.
These tests are intended to be performed when validating a sterilization process. Worldwide Standards We can source any standard from anywhere in the world. 11737–2 more about the cookies we use and how to change your settings. Search all products by.
