ASP Sterrad Technology Approved by AFSSAPS for Total Inactivation of Prions
Date:4/27/2010

all cases. Unlike infectious agents in other difficult-to-treat infectious diseases, prions exhibit an unusually high level of resistance to common sterilization methods and disinfection methods, including steam, and pose a threat to infection prevention in healthcare facilities.

About the Data

ASP, through the use of several independent laboratories in France and Germany produced a set of comprehensive studies on prion inactivation. 61 tests (41 in vivo and over 20 in vitro controls) evaluating and comparing disinfection, washing and sterilization procedures were performed. In these studies, the STERRAD(R) NX(TM) Advanced Cycle and STERRAD(R) 100NX(TM) System Flex and Standard Cycles proved to be more effective in prion inactivation than a steam cycle at 134degreesC, 18 minutes- a special optimized steam cycle recommended by the World Health Organization against prions.
