Ethylene oxide (EtO) Sterilisation

MICROTROL offers Ethylene oxide (EtO) sterilisation and bio burden reduction services.

EtO treatment is a widely practiced method of sterilisation; is a low temperature process (~45°C) which is ideal for heat labile products and eliminates/reduces the level of microbiological contaminants.

The main parameters that need to be monitored during the process are the temperature, humidity, gas concentration and exposure time. With years of experience, MICROTROL has developed and validated several customised process parameters.

Being a cold process, EtO sterilisation has no impact on physical characteristics of most products. The EtO process offers flexibility of choice,  vis-à-vis, packaging; which includes most polymer films, medical grade paper and combinations thereof.

MICROTROL currently has 14 EtO facilities located at: Baddi, Gurgaon, Manesar, Bawal, Unjha (Gujarat), Vasai, Navi Mumbai, Bengaluru, Edayar, Kolenchery, Rajapalayam, Thoothukudi, Guntur and Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam).
