EtO sterilization is currently one of the most popular sterilization methods for medical devices. Ethylene oxide gas exposure destroys pathogens and supports safe products for use on patients. EtO is typically used on products that cannot withstand high temperatures, such as plastic products or packaging, devices with electronic components, certain materials or materials that cannot withstand gamma or steam sterilization, or custom kits.
