Deep 3D AutoClave 3D Deep Pouches 150mmx100m
3D “Deep” Autoclave Pouches: A Review by Ronan Boyle, CEng, PMP
“When comparing the Steiriliu gusseted pouch to the market leading self-seal pouch it is clear that the Steiriliu product offers a superior option. While the material composition of both pouches would offer similar microbial barrier protection, the method of sealing and the user experience would be far better with the Steiriliu product. The self-seal pouches do not allow for convenient use when trying to seal bulky items. Due to the design of the pouch, unless it is folded precisely and sealed with the same precision each and every time, it is far too easy to fold incorrectly and leave an open path to the product and hence compromise the sterility. This is something that can also be easily missed due to the design of the pouch.
Having observed a number of these in use in the field this is even more prevalent with bulkier items which don't always allow for a flat surface to seal against. The Steiriliu 3D Deep pouch on the other hand is ideal for items that are bulky and are designed to expand to accommodate large or unusual shapes.
As they are provided on a roll they allow the user to easily size the pouch accordingly and ensure a flat sealing surface at all times. The design of the pouch ensures that a consistent sterile seal is established each time when used with the heat sealer.”

Prior to autoclaving, all instruments should be cleaned to remove visible debris manually or with the aid of an ultrasonic bath
The cleaned item can now be sealed in an autoclave pouch to fit your instruments, made of a specialised "steam porous" paper on the bottom side (eg. made of "Tyvek") and a clear plastic on the topside so you can see the content.
Most autoclave pouches are flat. Our recommended autoclave pouches have a third dimension - they expand to the height of your item! Available on a roll they can be dispensed with ease.
Once processed the colour indicator integrated into the autoclave bag will change colour to confirm sterilisation is complete.
Once sterilised this bag can be stored to protect the contents from contamination and opened when required.
In this way you can sterilise individual items or "sets" of items. These can be stored until required and opened for each client for single use.
