Now Available: The New ANSI/AAMI ST79

ST79 is the go-to reference for steam sterilization in all healthcare facilities, regardless of sterilizer or facility size. Developed by sterilization and manufacturing professionals ST79:2017 can help you to:

  • Support safety at every step for processing medical devices
  • Follow proper sterilization practices of processed items across multiple facility departments (i.e., OR, ER)
  • Understand the complete life cycle of sterilization processing—from managing temperature and humidity to processes for the decontamination area
  • Substantiate the need for equipment upgrades to meet federal guidelines that reduce potential citations
  • Stay in compliance with accrediting bodies such as The Joint Commission
  • Support the delivery of properly processed medical devices critical to optimizing patients’ health
  • Guide personnel toward desirable performance objectives

The new ST79 is easier to reference as it’s been reorganized into topical groupings and provides the flexibility for facilities to determine certain criteria based on their concerns.
