More than 200 billion medical products are sterilized each year. Despite this extraordinary activity, no reference book until now has examined the full range of sterilization methods used by thousands of hospitals, clinics and corporations. Sterilization Technology offers a practical presentation of traditional and advanced sterilization procedures, as well as coverage of the equipment and facilities necessary to apply them. More than 25 contributors, experts at the forefront of sterilization science, provide a one-step, how-to resource for scientists, engineers, microbiologists, health care professionals and other technical or managerial personnel involved in sterilization. Comprehensive and practical, Sterilization Technology is a valuable resource for microbiologists, biologists and engineers, as well as for anyone involved in the supervision, planning and implementation of sterilization processes or research efforts. Appropriate for non-technical managers, this reference enables a clear understanding of the technology needed to protect personnel, to obtain requisite equipment and to comply with federal and state regulations. The information provided in Sterilization Technology is also essential for professionals concerned with creating and enforcing regulations for sterilization practices.

The effective sterilisation of any material or device to be implanted in or used in close contact with the human body is essential for the elimination of harmful agents such as bacteria. Sterilisation of biomaterials and medical devices reviews established and commonly used technologies alongside new and emerging processes. Following an introduction to the key concepts and challenges involved in sterilisation, the sterilisation of biomaterials and medical devices using steam and dry heat, ionising radiation and ethylene oxide is reviewed. A range of non-traditional sterilisation techniques, such as hydrogen peroxide gas plasma, ozone and steam formaldehyde, is then discussed together with research in sterilisation and decontamination of surfaces by plasma discharges. Sterilisation techniques for polymers, drug-device products and tissue allografts are then reviewed, together with antimicrobial coatings for ‘self-sterilisation’ and the challenge presented by prions and endotoxins in the sterilisation of reusable medical devices. The book concludes with a discussion of future trends in the sterilisation of biomaterials and medical devices. With its distinguished editors and expert team of international contributors, Sterilisation of biomaterials and medical devices is an essential reference for all materials scientists, engineers and researchers within the medical devices industry. It also provides a thorough overview for academics and clinicians working in this area.

The book provides a comprehensive and easily accessiblereference source covering all important aspects of particleadhesion and removal. The core objective is to cover bothfundamental and applied aspects of particle adhesion and removalwith emphasis on recent developments. Among the topics to be covered include: 1. Fundamentals of surface forces in particle adhesion andremoval. 2. Mechanisms of particle adhesion and removal. 3. Experimental methods (e.g. AFM, SFA,SFM,IFM, etc.) tounderstand particle-particle and particle-substrateinteractions. 4. Mechanics of adhesion of micro- and nanoscaleparticles. 5. Various factors affecting particle adhesion to a variety ofsubstrates. 6. Surface modification techniques to modulate particleadhesion. 7. Various cleaning methods (both wet & dry) for particleremoval. 8. Relevance of particle adhesion in a host of technologies rangingfrom simple to ultra-sophisticated.

This Part of GB 18282 specifies general requirements and test methods for indicators that show exposure to sterilization processes by means of physical and/or chemical change of substances, and which are used to monitor the attainment of one or more of the variables required for a sterilization process. They are not dependent for their action on the presence or absence of a living organism.
