  • 3. DEFINITION • The process of freeing an article or a surface from all living microorganisms including viruses & bacterial spores • Various methods – Heat – Filtration – Radiation – Sterilant gases
  • 4. HEAT • Factors affecting – Nature of heat – dry or moist – Temperature & time – No of organisms present – Characteristics of the organism – Type of material • Two methods – Dry heat – Moist heat
  • 5. DRY HEAT • Kills by oxidation, protein denaturation & toxic effect of elevated levels of electrolyte • Types of processes – Flaming – Incineration – Hot air oven
  • 6. Dry heat - FLAMING • 2500C – 3000C • Points of forceps & Inoculation loops – heat in bunsen flame till red hot • Slow passage through flame to destroy vegetative bacteria on surface of scalpel blade, glass slides, mouths of test tubes
  • 7. Flaming
  • 8. Dry heat - INCINERATION • 8700C - 9800C • Complete burning to ashes • Used for soiled dressings, animal carcasses, pathological material, disposables, non-reusable soiled bedding
  • 9. Incineration
  • 10. Dry heat - HOT AIR OVEN • Holding temp & time: 1600C for 1 hr • Used for glassware, forceps, swabs, water impermeable oils, waxes & powders • Before placing in hot air oven – Dry glassware completely – Plug test tubes with cotton wool – Wrap glassware in Kraft papers • Don’t over load the oven • Allow free circulation of air between the material
  • 11. Dry heat - HOT AIR OVEN • Sterilization controls: to check whether the equipment is working properly – Chemical controls: Browne’s tubes • Color change from red to green – Thermocouples – Biological controls: paper strips containing106 spores of Clostridium tetani • Place strips in oven along with other material for the sterilization • Later culture the strips in thioglycollate broth or RCM at 37 0C for 5 days • Growth in medium indicates failure of sterilization

  • 26. RADIATION • 2 types – Non ionising – • Infra Red radiation ( rapid mass sterilization of syringes, etc) • Ultra Violet radiation (enclosed areas) – Ionising – Gamma, X ray, cathode ray (plastics, syringes, oil, metal foils) – Sterilization controls • Dosimeter – measures radiation dose • Colored discs • M radiodurans, B pumilus
  • 27. STERILANT GASES • Ethylene oxide • Formaldehyde • Betapropiolactone – More efficient than HCHO
  • 28. DISINFECTION • The process of freeing an article or a surface from all or some of the living microorganisms but not necessarily bacterial spores • Strong disinfectants – for inanimate object • Mild disinfectant (antiseptic) – superficial application on living tissue
