Steri-Tech Chooses CleanAir Engineering’s Picarro-Based Ethylene Oxide Solution for Multi-Point Indoor Air Quality Monitoring at Commercial Sterilization Facility
Combination of Advanced Technology and Turn-Key Solutions Will Enable Accurate Ethylene Oxide (EtO) Emissions Quantification and Aid in Promoting a Safer Sterilization Process
Steri-Tech, Inc., a Puerto Rican corporation founded in 1986 that specializes in contract sterilization of medical devices with EtO including validation services has chosen CleanAir Engineering, Inc. (CleanAir), to install and commission the MET-44 aQ featuring Picarro’s G2910 EtO gas analyzer. The MET-44 aQ brings advanced software, data controls, back-up power supply, external sensors and alarms with a multi-point manifold for facility-wide ambient air monitoring.
Thanks to CleanAir’s MET-44aQ and Picarro’s patented Cavity Ring-Down Spectroscopy (CRDS) technology, the system is able to precisely quantify all areas of the process from sterilization to aeration and shipping, as well as drum storage rooms and any other areas where fugitive EtO may be present.
Picarro is a leading provider of solutions to measure greenhouse gas (GHG) concentrations, trace gases and stable isotopes across many scientific and industrial applications. Industrial solutions range from mobile leak detection technology for utilities companies to trace gas analysis for semiconductor fabrication and pharmaceutical isolators. Services providers, regulators and researchers trust our patented CRDS to enable the detection of target molecules at parts-per-billion (ppb) levels or better resolution.
