After sterilization, the sterilization pouch can maintain the sterile environment inside the system for a certain period of time. Sterilization pouch is suitable for hospitals, dental clinics and beauty centers, CSSD, etc. The above are restrictions on sterilization pouch manufacturers, and the prohibition of reuse is a restriction on buyers.


Why the sterilization pouch cannot be reused?

The sterilization quality of the sterilization pouch is directly related to the medical quality. The sterilization pouch is often marked with a clear slogan for single use. Repeated use will affect the storage of sterile medical equipment in the bag.

How to use sterilization pouch correctly and safely?
