Compatibility of Material and Electronic Equipment with Ethylene Oxide Fumigation
U.S. EPA. Compatibility of Material and Electronic Equipment with Ethylene Oxide Fumigation. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Washington, DC, EPA/600/R-14/399, 2014.
The objective of the research presented in this report was to determine the material compatibility of electronics and other materials to exposure with ethylene oxide gas (EtO) fumigation, a commercially available fumigation technology used widely in the medical industry for sterilization and considered for use to inactivate Bacillus anthracis spores. A secondary objective was to test the efficacy of EtO against a Bacillus anthracis surrogate.
