About the STERIZONE® VP4 low temperature sterilizer
The STERIZONE® VP4 Sterilizer developed by TSO3 is a dual sterilant, low temperature sterilization system that utilizes vaporized hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) and ozone. Its single cycle can sterilize a large number and wide range of compatible devices, thereby allowing for a cost effective and error-free sterilization process. TSO3's unique Dynamic Sterilant Delivery SystemTM automatically adjusts the quantity of injected sterilant based on the load composition, weight and temperature. With its large 75 lb load capacity and a short cycle time, the STERIZONE® VP4 Sterilizer can enhance throughput and lower sterilization cost. The STERIZONE® VP4 Sterilizer was cleared for commercialization in the United States in December 2014.
