Contract Sterilization/Decontamination

Contract Sterilization Services are available at Biosafety to decontaminate / sterilize your items, equipment, supplies, and products at our facility and then ship them back to you or your customers. You will be requested to fill out a Sample Submittal Form and upon completion you will be issued a Completed Decontamination Certification Sheet describing the process and showing the sterilization cycle data.

Chlorine Dioxide Contract Sterilization

The CD Gas Advantage

  • ClorDiSys Technology CD Gas is an EPA registered sterilant
  • True gases are the only agents effective in hard to reach areas such as HVAC systems, cracks and crevices, and inside equipment.
  • Non-carcinogenic, residue free process
  • Safe on materials such stainless steel, anodized aluminum, painted steel, plastics, epoxy flooring and paints, gasket materials, and electronics
  • Effective against viruses, bacteria, fungi and spores as well as pinworms and their eggs
  • Validated against Beta Lactams including Penicillins, Cephalosporins, and Carbapenems

Applications:

Equipment entering sterile facilities Sterilization for non-sterile facilities Contaminated components
Tools, computers, printers, routers, electronics (RFID tags, monitoring instruments, microscopes), supplies (Shoes, safety glasses, clothing, animal cages) Medical devices, HEPA and other sterilizing filters Mold issues, pinworm contaminations, user-site returns
Packaging Options:

Tyvek presents an ideal packaging material as it is able let chlorine dioxide in, sterilizing the inner contents of the packaging and can prevent organisms from entering to contaminate the components after sterilization is completed.

  • Single wrap items in Tyvek (Component stays sterile during return shipment)
  • Double wrap items in Tyvek (Component and inside packaging stay sterile during return shipment)
  • No Tyvek wrapping (Requirement only to eliminate unique contamination)

Tyvek presents an ideal packaging material as it is able let chlorine dioxide in, sterilizing the inner contents of the packaging and can prevent organisms from entering to contaminate the components afterward.

Biological Indicators and Efficacy Testing Options*:

Biological Indicators (BIs) are used to challenge the efficacy of a decontamination/sterilization cycle. BIs generally consist of bacterial spores, as they are considered among the hardest organisms to kill. Sterilization is generally referred to as the 6-log (99.9999%) reduction of an organism.

  • BI inside tyvek to show item was decontaminated.
  • BI in chamber as further evidence that cycle was effective.
  • No BI's, just utilize parametric release based on concentration monitoring.

*Upon completion, a Completed Decontamination Certification Sheet is issued describing the process and showing the sterilization cycle data. View a sample Completed Decontamination Certification Sheet
