The future of gas sterilization

Colonoscopy and HIV

"Disinfection" and "Sterilization" are two words often used interchangeably, with detrimental results. Andersen's Tabletop and Multi-Load Sterilizers are true sterilization systems using ethylene oxide (EO) gas. EO sterilization is a gentle process, unlike using steam or harsh chemicals. Anything can be sterilized with ethylene oxide, even your most delicate equipment (endoscopes, optics, computers, long lumens).

In the following story, we see that the choice to disinfect, instead of sterilize endoscopes used in colonoscopies led to possible infection among patients. Instruments can be re-sterilized over and over again with ethylene oxide, without any damage to the instrument itself.
