Join the STERIS Life Sciences team for a wonderful learning opportunity during our upcoming webinar

Why attend the presentation:

Over the last 20 years, many new methods of sterilization have emerged in the market. Autoclaving with steam continues to be the method of choice for most products, however, steam autoclaving is not a universal process. Many products that require sterilization simply cannot withstand the temperatures or the extremely high moisture conditions associated with steam. Therefore, processes such as dry heat, vaporized hydrogen peroxide, and even ethylene oxide gas have found their place in the market.  

The objective of this presentation is to explore the advantages and disadvantages of two of the most common processes that are used in the Pharmaceutical and Research industries, steam autoclaving and dry heat. Where should one use either in preference over the other? To help answer this question, this presentation first describes how each process works and which application it is best suited for. Second, key selection elements such as productivity and total cost of ownership are compared.   


What will be covered: 

Learn about basic principles of sterilization for components used in the Pharmaceutical and Research industries 

Understand the key differences between moist heat and dry heat sterilization processes  

Develop the capacity to articulate the advantages/disadvantages of both approaches and identify the best process for a given application


Who will benefit:

Research Facility Managers, Pharma and Biopharma Manufacturing Facility Operations Managers, Architects & Engineers, Planners, Consultants, Contractors.
