Steam Sterilization for Medical Devices – ISO | Sterilization Validation Services
The device’s exposure uso to steam would be anywhere between 3 to 15 minutes, depending on the generated heat. Steam Sterilization is a simple yet very effective decontamination method. Follow these links to find other Standards similar to the one you are viewing. LSO provides Contract Steam Sterilization services for any product capable of withstanding high-temperature sterilization.
ISO specifies requirements for the development, validation and routine control of 71665-2 moist heat sterilization process for medical devices. Customers review and approve the protocol before the validation process begins. Our staff will prepare the protocol, perform all required sterilization cycles, conduct all testing and generate a complete final report. Sterilized packages need to be allowed to dry before being removed from the autoclave to prevent contamination.
Product s are placed in a device called the autoclave and heated through pressurized steam to kill all microorganisms including spores. To ensure optimal conditions, many autoclaves have built in meters that display temperature and pressure conditions with respect to time. Although we endeavour to maintain an up-to-date catalogue, on occasion we may not have the latest version of a document, including where it has not yet been provided through an international feed. Guidance on the application of ISO This document has been re-assessed by the committee, and judged to still be up to date.
WHAT WE PROVIDE
Saturated steam venting systems Saturated steam active air removal systems Air steam mixtures Water spray Water immersion ISO covers sterilization of solid as well as liquid medical devices.
Our sterilizer features a high capacity 19 cubic foot chamber size. The spores are incubated for 24 hours at the end of which time their growth rate is measured.
The chemical tape is placed both inside and outside the sterilized packages, whereas bioindicator devices release spores inside the autoclave. Steam sterilization process is not appropriate for many materials due to the high temperatures involved. Moist heat sterilization processes covered by ISO It is important to us that you purchase the right document. It is designed to cover every economic sector and virtually every activity of the humankind where technical standards may be used.
ISO tries to describe these guidelines more specifically through the use of examples and further explanation.
If you need help with the purchase or have any queries please email enquiries standards. For effective sterilization it is critical that the steam covers all surfaces of the device. The standard also requires detailed documentation of all conditions that affect the process performance now and in the future. We can program any desired cycle parameters and duplicate an existing sterilization cycle or develop a cycle for specialized requirements.
The guidance given in this Technical Specification is provided to promote good practice related to moist heat sterilization processes and to assist those developing and validating a moist lso sterilization process according to ISO Once removed, they must be allowed to cool to ambient temperatures, which may take several hours.
ISO covers sterilization of solid as well as liquid medical devices. If the spores have been destroyed it indicates that the sterilization process was effective.
International Classification for Standards ICS is an international classification system for technical standards.

We recommend that you check the website of the publishers of the international document before 17656-2 a purchase. For more information visit www. ISO only provides very general guidelines on steam sterilization requirements and operations.
Biological indicator devices and Indicator tape which changes color are also used to gauge the performance of the autoclave.
