Sterilizing Filtration in Healthcare Facilities

Central Water Systems / Device Reprocessing

Sterilizing Filtration

Sterilization is the most critical filtration process for water systems or device reprocessing. It is the final filter used to remove bacteria from device rinse water (such as endoscope washers), central water systems and at the point-of-use in a laboratory or patient treatment location. 

Critical Process Filtration sterilizing solutions remove biological contaminants from products before packaging and have an effective pore size of 0.22µm or 0.20µm and below. These membrane filters are integrity tested and validated to ASTM F838 for ≥ 7 log reduction of bacteria. 

For more practical information on using filters for sterilization, see the Resources list below.
