ASP Sterrad Technology Approved by AFSSAPS for Total Inactivation of Prions

PARIS, April 27, 2010 /PRNewswire/ --

- French Health Products Safety Agency AFSSAPS Approves STERRAD(R) Hydrogen Peroxide Gas Plasma Technology for Total Inactivation of Protein-based Infectious Agents Linked to Fatal Brain Diseases

Advanced Sterilization Products (ASP) announced today that the French Health Products Safety Agency, AFSSAPS, will approve the low-temperature hydrogen peroxide gas plasma STERRAD(R) NX(TM) and the STERRAD(R) 100NX(TM) Sterilization Systems for total inactivation of prions.

Prions, which are protein-based infectious agents, cause neurodegenerative brain diseases characterized by the formation of "holes" in brain tissue. Prions are highly resistant to the commonly used procedures for inactivating them, and until recently, only the most severe sterilization processes had been proven effective.

"The effectiveness of low-temperature STERRAD(R) technology against the prion threat confirmed that is possible to eliminate these deadly pathogens while helping to preserve the integrity of medical devices, including heat sensitive surgical instruments," said Dr. Pascal Clayette, SPI-BIO, CEA, Fontenay-aux-Roses, France. "This is a great milestone for healthcare facilities who use an increasing number of sophisticated and costly surgical instruments and for patients who demand the most stringent infection prevention practices."

Following a number of in vivo and in vitro studies conducted on behalf of ASP by two independent laboratories in France and Germany, the STERRAD(R) NX(TM) Advanced Cycle and STERRAD(R) 100NX(TM) System Flex and Standard Cycles successfully provided prion
