We use a highly advanced 100% pure ethylene oxide gas sterilizer that delivers precise moisture levels for effective sterilization, and utilizes minimum quantity of ethylene oxide gas that was easy to recover at the end of the cycle. This procedure has taken into consideration the very special hygroscopic nature of synthetic absorbable sutures which has the tendency to bond effectively with ethylene oxide in the presence of moisture thus they degenerate and lose strength on storage, leading to serious implications for the patient and the surgeon.
