Bulk syringe sterilization?
    #11326327 - 10/26/09 07:51 PM (8 years, 1 month ago)

I realize that you can sterilize syringes by wrapping them in foil and putting them in a PC, or do the suck/squirt boiling water routine, but what about doing a bunch at a time for later use. I was thinking that with an impulse sealer and some tyvek, you could seal up a dozen or so dry syringes, PC them and have them sealed for sterility until needed. I understand that tyvek is spun polyethylene, so I bet it would work with a sealer. What do you all think?

What I was thinking of is having them come out sealed and individually wrapped, much like new.

Really? If you keep a dozen or so syringes, plungers down, just kept in a ziplock bag they would be fine to take out as needed for months/years in the future? My idea is to replicate the sterile packaging of manufacturers, but if that is completely unnecessary, great. But if that's so, why have sterile packaging in the first place?

well if you dont suck some unsterile air I just dont see how contaminant would enter in the syringue, and yeah just keep em in a ziploc after and It should be fine. I sterilized 12 syringue or so and they are juist standing in a aluminium tray in my closet. Don't fprget to flame the needle tho.

Uh huh. :yesnod: That's how you do it. You wrap them each in foil, and they stay that way until you use them.
Fold it like you are folding up a print.

Good to hear, just a theory I thought I'd toss out for opinions.  If I ever actually get a sealer, I'll probably try it, though. Tyvek is cheap enough, and housewrap sounds perfect. Thanks for the feedback. And Doc, I'm aware of foil, but that's not hermetically sealed like melted together tyvek. With a new syringe, there is no need to even flame sterilize, they are packed sterile.

of course sealed bag will work pretty fine, its just overkill imo. Leaving it in foil is pretty fine too.

Which works fine, by the way. I use an impulse sealer to make desiccant packets.
