DD CEN ISO/TS 17665-2:2009

For effective sterilization it is critical that the steam covers all surfaces of the device. ISO specifies requirements for the development, validation and routine control of a moist heat sterilization process for medical devices. We can program any desired cycle parameters and duplicate an existing sterilization cycle or develop a cycle for specialized requirements.

Office-based health care facilities – Reprocessing of reusable medical and surgical instruments and equipment, and maintenance of the associated environment You may be interested in this related standard Sterilization of health care products – Radiation – Guidance on dosimetric aspects You may be interested in this related standard.

Customers review and approve the protocol before 1765-2 validation process begins.

Biological indicator devices and Indicator tape which changes color are also used to gauge the performance of the autoclave. Steam Sterilization is a simple yet very effective decontamination method. Our staff will prepare the protocol, perform all required sterilization cycles, conduct all testing and generate a complete final report.

Steam sterilization process is not appropriate for many materials due to the high temperatures involved. Like Us on Facebook. LSO provides Contract Steam Sterilization services for any product capable of withstanding high-temperature sterilization. Moist heat sterilization processes covered by ISO Guidance on the application of ISO This document has been re-assessed by the committee, and judged to still be up to date.


The standard also requires detailed documentation of all conditions that affect the process performance now and in the future. It is important to us that you purchase the right document.

Saturated steam venting systems Saturated steam active air removal systems Air steam mixtures Water spray Water immersion ISO covers sterilization of solid as well as liquid medical devices.

Sterilized packages need to be allowed to dry before being removed from the autoclave to prevent contamination. Our sterilizer features a high capacity 19 cubic foot chamber size. Once removed, they must be allowed to cool to ambient temperatures, which may take several hours.

ISO tries to describe these guidelines more specifically kso the use of examples and further explanation. It is designed to cover every economic sector and virtually every activity of the humankind where technical standards may be used.

Product s are placed in a device called the autoclave and heated through pressurized steam to kill all microorganisms including spores.

We recommend that you check the website of the publishers of the international document before making a purchase. Although we endeavour to maintain an up-to-date catalogue, on occasion iwo may not have the latest version of a document, including where it has not yet been provided through an international feed.

The guidance given in this Technical Specification is provided to promote good practice related to moist heat sterilization processes 1766-52 to assist those developing and validating a moist heat sterilization process according to ISO For more information visit www. If you need help with the purchase or have any queries please email enquiries standards.

Follow these links to find other Standards similar to the one you are viewing. ISO only provides very general guidelines on steam sterilization requirements and operations.

The oso tape is placed both inside and outside the sterilized packages, whereas bioindicator devices release spores inside the autoclave.

To ensure optimal conditions, many autoclaves have built in meters that display temperature and pressure conditions with respect to time. The spores are incubated for 24 hours at the end of which time their growth rate is measured.

International Classification for Standards ICS is an international classification system for technical standards. The device’s 177665-2 time to steam would be anywhere between 3 to 15 minutes, depending on the generated heat. If the spores have been destroyed it indicates that the sterilization process was effective. ISO covers sterilization of solid as well as liquid medical devices.
