As the sterilization requirements of sterile pharmaceutical factories are getting higher and higher, hospitals have higher and higher requirements for terminal disinfection, and hydrogen peroxide sterilizers are becoming more and more popular. This article mainly introduces some precautions for hydrogen peroxide sterilization. It is relatively trivial, and experts are welcome to guide and expand.
- Use corresponding disinfectants for different scenarios: sterile pharmaceutical factories generally use sporicide or 35% hydrogen peroxide according to the Pharmacopoeia, and hospital disease control systems generally use 3~8% hydrogen peroxide and 35% hydrogen peroxide, and The principle of sterilization equipment is related, and this article will not discuss it.
- Be sure to consider the compatibility of the equipment or color steel plates in the sterilization area with hydrogen peroxide, and if necessary, use color steel plates, leftovers from the ground, etc. to do the titration test. In particular, companies that have never used this type of equipment must be treated rigorously. For example, some epoxy floors with poor quality may change color or even foam when encountering standing water, and the compatibility with disinfectants is even worse.
- No matter what concentration of hydrogen peroxide disinfectant is used, if the disinfectant drops on the skin, it must be rinsed with a lot of water immediately. When encountering high concentrations of hydrogen peroxide, the skin will feel tingling and lead oxide will turn white, but Don’t worry, your skin will be back to normal in about an hour.
