There are several types of sterilization packaging systems available in the market today that can protect the contents of a package and support aseptic presentations. The most used packaging system by medical institutions includes non-woven wrappers, plastic peel pouches along with various paper and containment devices. Along with this, healthcare institutes also have devices available for protecting instruments or components such as insert cases or trays, reusable accessories, paper bags, foam, and towels.
But often, sterilization packaging becomes more intricate than one might think. As a Class II medical device (classified by FDA), there are some stringent regulatory rules to adhere in each system for maintaining patients safety. Adding to this the presence of some high tech complex surgical devices calls for greater diligence in each system, instrument sets, and the sterilization process. The issues related to cost, rapid turnover, ease of use, material compatibility and storage space further have to be balanced with patient safety and instrument protection concerns. Hence, deciding on the appropriate packaging system for sterilizing devices has become a challenging quest for medical institutes. To this end, healthcare professionals should work closely with the instrument, sterilizer, and packaging manufacturers for identifying the appropriate devices to wrap, package, and contain sterilized items.
