Lucideon Releases New White Paper for the Medical Device Industry
Lucideon has released a new white paper titled ‘Cleaning and Sterilization Validation of Reusable Medical Devices’.
Written by Craig Donald, head of analytical chemistry at Lucideon, and co-authored by Joseph Moss, analytical chemist at Lucideon, the paper discusses the importance of minimizing the risk of infection, from contaminated reusable devices, by assuring the validity of the cleaning and sterilization procedures used throughout manufacturing and reprocessing stages.
“It’s imperative that manufacturers have their reusable devices reprocessed correctly using specific, validated cleaning and sterilization methods, in order to prevent the passing of infection to other patients.”
“Validation of cleaning methods produces procedures which are proven to effectively clean difficult soils from all parts of the device, including complex areas such as hinges or grooves.”
