Device Life-Cycle Testing (Repeat Sterilization Cycles)

Device Life-Cycle Testing (Repeat Sterilization Cycles)

Device life cycle testing determines the functional life of any reusable medical device or tray.  The results can establish if or when the medical device exceeds its use-life.  The device is exposed repeatedly to the reprocessing procedures it would incur at a health care facility.  By executing this test, the manufacturer will have validated how many times a device can be reprocessed and still remain functional. 

The testing is performed in compliance with recommendations from AAMI TIR12 and AAMI TIR30. Nelson Laboratories has the equipment and qualified personnel to provide testing on all reusable medical devices.  Nelson Laboratories also has the expertise to deliver individualized consultation which makes us the clear choice to perform this analysis.

Study Outline

Life cycle testing will use validated cleaning, disinfection and/or sterilization processes on reusable devices or trays.  The number of reprocessing cycles will be based on the type of device and the desire of the manufacturer.
