  • Causa
    The customer labelling for transmitter sensor cables and receiver sensor cables states that the cables can be sterilized with the sterrad sterilization system. at the initial release of these products the only sterrad method was the 100s model. sterrad has since introduced the 100nx and nx models. the transmitter sensor cable and receiver sensor cable have been validated for sterilization in the sterrad 100s sterilizer and ethylene oxide (eto) sterilizers only. these products have not been validated for use in any other sterrad sterilizer. ge oec medical systems inc. internal testing has shown the high concentration of hydrogen peroxide used in the sterrad 100nx sterilizer is not compatible with some of the materials used in the transmitter sensor cable which may result in the degradation of the material. this could lead to a sterilization issue. testing shows that the receivers are not affected by the change in sterilization.
