Sterilization Industry Trends

Last week, there MD Publishing posted a new Roundtable discussion about sterilization equipment, troche in which 3 experts explained trends in the industry. Dr. Richard Warburton, our CTO and General Counsel, troche used the opportunity to discuss a major trend in the sterilization industry that the experts neglected to point out: that of increased awareness of employee safety. Dr. Warburton explains that “With greater education and awareness of the hazards, improved design of the sterilizers, increased use of continuous gas monitors, and wider implementation of engineering controls and PPE, the use of sterilant chemicals in healthcare is becoming safer every day.” Unfortunately, while this seems to be one of, if not the, most important trends over the last several decades, it was barely mentioned in the article.
