Medical devices that are sterilized with EtO and then shipped to their final destination using a third-party logistics provider may continue to off-gas. During transport, EtO accumulates in trucks and exposes workers who receive and unload these shipments. Once in storage facilities, the off-gassing continues and accumulation of emissions can often exceed OSHA’s permissible exposure limit.
ChemDAQ has been a leader in EtO monitoring solutions in the U.S. for more than 20 years, and we are committed to ensuring the safety of all workers involved in the transport of sterilized medical instruments. Several of our monitoring solutions are designed to give logistics providers the tools they need to know if and when to accept or reject a shipment and ensure logistics professionals are safe from toxic off-gassing.
ChemDAQ’s Steri-Trac 2 area monitor continuously and simultaneously measures EtO vapor levels in the air. This fixed monitoring system can be installed at multiple points throughout the facility to keep workers safe around-the-clock and alert you if and when hazardous levels occur.Learn More
