Moist-heat sterilization of blood bags


Vittorio Mascherpa has written an interesting article on the sterilization of blood collection bags. The abstract reads:

“This article provides basic information on the sterilization of blood bags systems by moist-heat. Problems of pressure compensation and steam penetration into the system parts without water inside, and the process choice between single and double autoclaving are discussed.”

The article can be accessed here.
