Packaging cleaned instruments prior to placing them in the steriliser is a standard of care that protects instruments and maintains their sterility until they are ready for use on a patient. Unprotected instruments may be re-contaminated with dust and spatter, or by coming into contact with any number of non-sterile surfaces during transport, storage and tray set-up.
Sterilisation pouches pouch must be constructed out of two separate materials. One side the pouch should be made of a water-resistant polymer laminate. This is a transparent material that allows full vision of the equipment within.
The other side should be made out of a non-recycled craft paper. Craft paper provides the perfect amount of permeability, being porous to the necessary sterilization vapours while keeping all other particles (such as microorganisms out).
