Sterilization of Invivo Components

Sterilization There are three types of sterilization that can be appropriate for our components according to their materials. They are: steam autoclaving, ethylene oxide (also known as ETO) and dry-heat. Please refer to your preferred method’s equipment for specific times, temperatures, settings and/or directions for use.

This article is to provide general guidance for sterilization according to the materials we use in the our components, but please keep in mind, we are a custom manufacturer, so this information may not apply to the parts you are using. Please refer to the spec sheet of your particular components for more information.

Our components are designed for one-time use only.
