Gas Ethylane oxide, formaldehyde.
Dry Heat 106°C for 120 minutes.
Disinfection Benzalkonium chloride, Formalin, Ethanol, etc.
Radiation gamma irradiated at 2.5 Mrad with unstabilized plastic.
+ Sterilizing reduces mechanical strength. Do not use PC vessels for vacuum application if they have been autoclaved.
