Introducing the 3M™ Steri-Vac™ Sterilizer/Aerator GSX Series with 3M™ Cycle Programmer
For over 50 years, EO sterilization has been the gold standard for safe and effective low-temperature sterilization. Now, our innovative 3M™ Steri-Vac™ Sterilizer/Aerator GSX Series offers a new level of in-house control and compliance. With the unique 3M Cycle Programmer, easy-to-use controls and state-of-the-art mechanical design, the GSX Series sterilizers are engineered to help you improve turnaround times and reduce costs compared to contract sterilization.
3M™ Steri-Vac™ Sterilizer/Aerator GSX Series
3M™ Steri-Vac™ Sterilizer/Aerator GSX Series ethylene oxide (EO) sterilizer/aerators are designed to be used with single-dose 3M™ Steri-Gas™ 100% EO Gas Cartridges to provide a safe and effective low temperature sterilization process for medical device, pharmaceutical, veterinary, laboratory and other non-healthcare applications.
The GSX Series sterilizers can automatically aerate the processed load in the sterilization chamber after EO gas sterilization. The self-contained system requires power, compressed air and exhaust vent lines for operation. No floor drains or bulk tanks of ethylene oxide are used.
In addition, the GSX Series sterilizer:
- Is available in two models, the GS5X and GS8X, which provide 136 L (4.8 cubic feet) and 224 L (7.9 cubic feet) of usable chamber space, respectively
- Requires minimal floor space
- Can be installed free-standing, on a rack, or in-wall
- Is available in a single door or double-door configuration, facilitating pass-through processing for controlled environments. Mounting frames and finishing fascia panels are also available.
Customized Cycles: 3M™ Cycle Programmer
The 3M™ Cycle Programmer is a software program that allows the user to develop unique and optimized ethylene oxide (EO) sterilization processes specifically tailored to their product requirements. The 3M Cycle Programmer allows programming of 28 different parameters in eight of the nine active stages of the EO sterilization process and operates on a personal computer (PC) supplied by the user. Custom cycles are created with the 3M Cycle Programmer and imported to the GSX Series sterilizer using a USB drive. The 3M Cycle Programmer does not function directly on the GSX Series sterilizer. The GSX Series sterilizers can be set up with different security levels (e.g. Supervisor, Operator) to allow control of the cycles on the equipment.
