Report

Purpose/Objective:

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.
