The Stericool A series H2O2 Plasma Sterilizers are Getinge’s technologically advanced and yet affordable solution for Low Temperature sterilization. Stericool sterilizers employ state–ofthe- art patented technologies to deliver rapid and safe sterilization for delicate, heat-sensitive, and moisture-sensitive instruments.
Since many components in advanced surgical tools cannot withstand the heat or pressure of traditional steam sterilizers, healthcare providers are growing evermore dependent on low temperature technologies to maintain efficient infection control. Getinge’s wide product offering together with an impressive portfolio of low temperature sterilizers provide the right solutions for hospitals embracing new operating techniques, such as Minimal Invasive Surgery (MIS).

The sterilizer is equipped with a set of preprogrammed cycles. The three (3) included cycles are for the following applications:
The sterilizer chamber is made from solid, high quality, type 316L stainless steel. The sterilization chamber is rectangular with all internal corners radiused (also to aid cleaning). An RF antenna is located within the sterilization chamber for the homogenous distribution of plasma within the chamber. The sterilizer features two stainless steel instrument loading trays with 10.0kg (22.0lbs) for 110Lt units and 12.0kg (26.45lbs) for 160Lt units (please see Sterilization Cycles section for load specifications per sterilization cycle). The sterilization heating chamber is completely isolated with armaflex isolation foam and is mounted on a rigid aluminum framework with caster wheels (rubberized feet for stationary sterilizers also included in packaging). Automatic, Vertically Sliding Door The door(s) is fully automatic in operation and is raised and lowered by a motor. Door operation is controlled via the user friendly 7” touchscreen LCD (back door in double-door units are controlled via an illuminated push-button on the non-control side). A mechanical safety edge stops the door if it is obstructed while closing, thus protecting the operator and loading equipment. The door is automatically sealed. In addition to the door safety systems, the chamber is provided with a pressure monitoring system that ensures that all chamber pressure has been relieved prior to allowing the door(s) to open. The fascia temperature never exceeds 55°C.
Pipes, Valves & Components.
All piping is made of stainless steel and Teflon. All process valves are electronically operated high quality stainless steel or brass valves. All standard components are non-proprietary and can be easily sourced.
Mechanical Vacuum Pump
Due to deep vacuum requirements, Stericool sterilizers feature an option of highly efficient 2-stage oilsealed rotary pumps, mounted on vibration isolators for quiet operation. The vacuum pump exhaust is protected with a highly effective oil-mist filter and features an oil-return mechanism to recycle excess
Stericool features a 7” color touchscreen LCD with Master Supervisor and custom built IO Controller Card. Stericool’s intelligent system management software constantly monitors the devices performance and all cycle parameters through multiple sensors (pressure, temperature, vacuum-level, plasma and Sterilant concentration) and keeps the user informed about the sterilization cycle progress and system errors. The Sterilizer software has been designed so that only operating cycles with process parameters well within the preset acceptable range are allowed for completion
