“We aim to provide every medical actor with perfectly sterilized medical devices, in an inexpensive and ecological manner.”

Marc Spaltenstein, CEO

Our mission


Every day, people die from nosocomial infections resulting from the use of non-sterile instruments. This problem is especially worrying in emerging countries, where cases of such infections are up to 20 times more likely to happen than in developed countries. Costs and limited supplies of resources combined with the lack of a system designed to operate within a harsh environment prevent some areas from conducting proper sterilization. At SteriLux, we believe our solution will have a real impact by improving the effectiveness of medical care. We are devoted to create an inexpensive ecological system that satisfies the highest medical norms and fitted for any environment.
