At Summit Medical, we understand that with each additional FDA clearance comes increased flexibility for our customers, which is why we’re committed to providing as many sterilization cycle options as possible. We follow through on this commitment with continuous product development and validation testing.
As low temperature sterilization has become more popular for delicate medical devices the need for manufacturers to support these cycles has increased. We are constantly working to validate our InstruSafe products for a variety of available STERRAD and STERIS V-Pro cycles. We also recognize that low-temperature sterilization technology continues to improve, so our efforts to obtain clearances for new cycles are ongoing.
