  • Causa
    Stryker has identified that unacceptable validation reports were in place to support the unwrapped 10 minute, 132° (270°f) gravity steam sterilization cycle as well as the ethylene oxide (eo) sterilization cycle listed in instructions for use. this may give rise to cross infection as viable bacteria/ pathogens could be delivered to the subsequent patient. as a result the instructions for use (ifu) are being modified in a manner that these two sterilisation methods are being deleted and the remaining two options currently given (gravity wrapped & pre-vacuum wrapped methods) will remain in place.
  • Acción
    The Gravity Unwrapped sterilization cycle and the Ethylene Oxide sterilization cycle have both been deleted as sterilisation options from the Instructions for Use (IFU1000-401-070), for Laparoscopic Instruments and Accessories. New instructions for use reflecting this deletion will be circulated to customers.The Gravity Wrapped and Pre-Vacuum Wrapped sterilisation methods will remain unchanged.
