Sterilization pouches, tubing and covers

Packaging is an important step in the sterile processing of reusable medical devices. Sterilization packaging must:

  • allow sterilization of enclosed devices
  • maintain sterility until opened
  • provide for aseptic delivery

Sterilization pouches or peel pouches are designed to contain single items. Sterility maintenance or dust covers are protective plastic bags used to help maintain the sterility of an item by protecting it from the environment.
