Advancements in Sterilization Technology
Terragene’s Product Specialist, Matias Rossi, showcased groundbreaking Instant Biological Indicators at the 23rd World Sterilization Congress Symposium in Brussels, Belgium. The lecture emphasized the role of this disruptive technology in mitigating risks associated with parametric release in healthcare settings.
Challenges in Sterilization Processes
Rossi highlighted challenges in sterilization processes, dispelling myths around steam sterilization simplicity. Ensuring equipment qualification, process validation, and attention to temperature variations in different materials are vital. In healthcare, diverse needs and urgent situations demand adaptable protocols, adding complexity.
Rising Threats and Infection Control Challenges
The lecture delved into challenges posed by population growth, antibiotic misuse, emerging pathogens, and hospital-associated infections (HAIs). Terragene stressed the critical impact of HAIs on mortality rates and economic burdens, emphasizing the need for innovative solutions.
Terragene’s Comprehensive Quality Assurance Program
Terragene proposed a comprehensive quality assurance program, integrating physical, chemical, and biological controls. The Photon System, an instant readout biological indicator, was introduced as a game-changer, providing real-time results and detailed information beyond a simple positive or negative outcome.
Bionova Cloud Ecosystem: Transforming Sterilization Processes
Terragene’s Bionova Cloud ecosystem emerged as a revolutionary solution for efficient and real-time quality control in Central Sterile Supply Departments (CSSD).
