Q : Can Plasma sterilizer replace the EtO sterilizer to seterilize the medical devices and instruments currently being used in the Operating Room or CSSD?
A : Our quick answer is YES. There are rare items that may be sterilized with EtO that cannot be sterilized using a plasma sterilizer; specifically, powders, cellulose containing paper and cloth, and long narrow lumens.
May I refer you back to questions No. 8 for more information on this issue
