Ethylene Oxide (EtO) Sterilization
Ethylene Oxide Sterilization, also known as EO Gas or EtO, is a gas diffusion sterilization method suitable for many applications. It does not require a high temperature and is compatible with a variety of materials, resins and products. EO Gas Sterilization relies on four parameters: gas concentration, temperature, relative humidity, and time of exposure. Microorganisms are kept from reproducing due to alkylating agents in the Ethylene Oxide (EO). Learn How Veterinarians Use Anprolene EO Gas Sterilization.

Anprolene EO Gas Sterilizers offer the most affordable and versatile low temperature sterilizers, a system that healthcare facilities around the world have trusted for over 40 years and have the most gentle 100% EtO sterilization cycle on the market: room temperature sterilization (minimum 68°F), no steam injection, no deep vacuum and only 17.5 grams of gas. Enjoy the latest technology with more powerful ventilation and purge pumps, unique active aeration system, digital display tracks cycle progress, temperature sensor monitors room conditions during each cycle, microprocessor monitors cycle and automatically restores system in case of power failure.

EO Gas 4 now makes it possible to achieve sterilization with ethylene oxide in 3.5 hours. Unlike traditional Ethylene oxide sterilizers which involve rigid metal chambers and large external tanks of gas, the AN EO Gas 4 system uses gas impermeable sterilization bags and unit dose 100% EtO cartridges. By eliminating chamber dead space, EO-FCT employs only a tiny fraction of the EtO used in other systems.

The EOGas 4 is a 50°C or 30°C cycle, bench top cabinet with active aeration. 4 cycles are available, the fastest being just 3½ hours at 50°C, all delivering 10-6 SAL. It requires minimal installation: just a 1" PVC hose to the outside with the wall plate provided. There are no water or vacuum lines required. Sterilization and aeration happen in the same cabinet.

EO Gas 4 compared to other low temperature sterilizers:
  • The widest range of material and product compatibility (other than foods, liquids, or drugs).
  • Ability to sterilize long, narrow, and multi-channel lumens.
  • All sides and surfaces are sterilized; no “shadowing”
  • Compatible with all common packaging materials.
  • Will not damage delicate instruments like harsh chemical sterilants.
