The sterility of a medical instrument is a matter of probability: An instrument is sterile if the probability of viable microorganisms goes from 1 million before sterilization to one (the loneliest number) after sterilization. The medical community calls this a “6-log reduction” (“6-log” represents 10-6). *keysurgical.com
Around the world, practitioners in every health-care profession require highly durable plastic sterilization trays that will protect delicate equipment and instruments during procedures, and then withstand the high-temperature processes involved in safely cleaning and sterilizing the equipment for future use. Polyetherimide (PEI), Polycarbonate and Polypropylene are ideal materials for sterilization trays and a wide range of other medical applications, delivering strength, structural integrity, and extended life spans.
