Steri-Tech, Inc. (Steri-Tech), a Puerto Rican corporation founded in 1986 that specializes in contract sterilization of medical devices with ethylene oxide EtO including validation services, has chosen Picarro, Inc. (Picarro) and CleanAir Engineering, Inc. (CleanAir) to provide an advanced EtO monitoring solution. CleanAir will integrate and deploy Picarro’s G2910 EtO Gas Concentration Analyzer as part of CleanAir’s EtO Indoor Air Quality Monitoring System (MET-44 aQ) that includes advanced software, data controls, back-up power supply, external sensors and alarms, and a multi-point manifold for facility-wide ambient air monitoring. Picarro’s technology and CleanAir’s MET-44 was chosen by the owner and general manager along with the company’s EHS team following a thorough review of other technologies.
Picarro’s G2910 is tuned specifically for measuring EtO, allowing clients to better characterize emissions from their processes in real-time. Thanks to Picarro’s patented Cavity Ring-Down Spectroscopy (CRDS) technology, the G2910 is able to precisely measure in all areas of the process, from sterilization to aeration and shipping, as well as drum storage rooms and any other areas where fugitive EtO may be present.
