Our mission:

low-temperature sterilization process

SteriLux has patented and developed an innovative low-temperature sterilization process for terminal sterilization of metal and non-metal medical devices. The environmentally-friendly process relies on the use of ultraviolet radiation to activate oxygen from the air into ozone.

Ozone, also known as trioxygen, when in contact with water vapor, forms hydroxyl radicals which are highly reactive molecules with great oxidizing properties. At the end of the sterilization process, ozone is safetly converted back to oxygen, leaving no toxic residues or by-products.

A wide spectrum of advantages

of advantages

Low-temperature

The device is designed to sterilize heat-sensitive medical devices. The sterilization cycle runs at room temperature and atmospheric pressure to maximize the preservation of medical devices' integrity.

Green technology

The process relies on the use of UV radiation to produce ozone from ambient air. Ozone does not leave toxic fumes or residues; rather it converts back to oxygen that can be safely realeased into the air.

Safety

The device has an intuitive user interface and RFID technology to ensure the traceability of each sterilization cycle. The container is highly resistant and allows extended sterile storage of medical devices.

Cost-effective

In order to minimize the costs associated with sterilization, the device has been designed to run with low energy consumption, to have high endurance and to operate without consumables.

About

SteriLux was founded in August 2014 with the ambition to have a major impact on the improvement of quality medical care. We are comitted to combine Swiss quality and innovation to transform the way healthcare professionals address infection control.

Team

Currently, our team is composed of seven highly skilled employees. Effective and dynamic, the team is committed to taking SteriLux to its ambitious goals and has relentlessly been proving its ability to accomplish challenging goals.

Standards

SteriLux is ISO 13485 certified since 2018. Our manufacturing line meet the highest medical standards and studies are conducted in accordance with international and industry standards such as ISO 14937, ISO 11607, ISO 14161, ISO 11138.
