More than 200 billion medical products are sterilized each year. Despite this extraordinary activity, no reference book until now has examined the full range of sterilization methods used by thousands of hospitals, clinics and corporations. Sterilization Technology offers a practical presentation of traditional and advanced sterilization procedures, as well as coverage of the equipment and facilities necessary to apply them. More than 25 contributors, experts at the forefront of sterilization science, provide a one-step, how-to resource for scientists, engineers, microbiologists, health care professionals and other technical or managerial personnel involved in sterilization. Comprehensive and practical, Sterilization Technology is a valuable resource for microbiologists, biologists and engineers, as well as for anyone involved in the supervision, planning and implementation of sterilization processes or research efforts. Appropriate for non-technical managers, this reference enables a clear understanding of the technology needed to protect personnel, to obtain requisite equipment and to comply with federal and state regulations. The information provided in Sterilization Technology is also essential for professionals concerned with creating and enforcing regulations for sterilization practices.
