PeraSafe sterilizer is a safe, rapid and effective solution to your entire sterilization needs! Sterilization of equipment is of the utmost importance for anyone using sensitive instruments for human contact.
PeraSafe is an innovative, safe and significantly more rapid and effective alternative to glutaraldehyde for cold sterilisation of medical instruments. Sterilisation of instruments, such as flexible labile endoscopes that cannot be heat sterilised, is currently carried out using 2% solution of activated glutaraldehyde. PeraSafe is microbiologically superior to glutaraldehyde, it destroys sporing bacteria in only 1 minute and sterilises in just 10 minutes, unlike the the manufacturer's recommendation of 10 hours for sterilisation for a 2% activated glutaraldehyde. In the absence of any viable alternative for sterilisation instruments, the use of gluteraldehyde has been the standard practice for the past thirty years, resulting in serious detrimental effects on the health of nurses and theatre staff, causing such health problems as asthma, dermatitis, conjunctivitis, sinusitis and allergic rhinitis. Nurses affected by these complaints have successfully taken action against their employers and in situations where the level of fumes from glutaraldehyde has exceeded the legal limit, operating theatres have been closed down.
PeraSafe is the first major development for years in instrument sterilisation and will revolutionise hospital procedures.
Perasafe sterilant has independently proven efficacy against viruses including HIV and Hepatitus B & C.
It is also effective against viruses, spores and fungi that can be transmitted between patients via flexible endoscopes, ultra-sound probes and other reusable, non-invasive, heat sensitive medical devices.
Perasafe is non-damaging to sensitive instruments and is the best alternative to glutaraldehyde for cold sterilisation of medical instruments and is approved by and compatible with manufacturers of medical devices and automated endoscope reprocessors and washer/ disinfectors. A unique corrosion inhibition system, allied to a neutral pH solution, optimises efficacy and compatibility.
Perasafe powder shelf life is 2 years from date of manufacture.
How PERASAFE works
The aldehyde- free Perasafe solution gives efficacy without harm to equipment or health risks to staff. This avoids the need for special fume extraction or waste disposal systems.
Perasafe powder generates peracetic and peracetyl ions in situ when dissolved in water. The neutral pH of the solution helps combine the biocidal efficacy of peracetic acid with materials compatability which allows repeated and rapid decontamination of pathogens from instruments and other equipment.
Step by step preparation instructions for Perasafe powder:
Fill a container with the required volume of lukewarm tap water (30-35 degrees Celcius)
Add the powder to the water. You can use the measuring cap provided if you wish.
Stir the powder until it dissolves to create a clear blue solution. This usually takes ten to fifteen minutes.
Use solution as required. Perasafe solution fades to colourless in approx 1 hour and can be used for up to 24 hours after activation.
NB 16.2g of powder is required for 1 litre of water and 81g powder for 5 litres.
