  • Suitable for Steam, ETO and Gamma Sterilization

Instructions

  • May be used for Steam, Ethylene Oxide or Gamma Irradiation sterilization

CDC Information on Double Wrapping

In central processing, double wrapping can be done sequentially or non-sequentially (i.e. simultaneous wrapping). Wrapping should be done in such a manner to avoid tenting and gapping. The sequential wrap uses two sheets of the standard sterilization wrap, one wrapped after the other. This procedure creates a package within a package. The non-sequential process uses two sheets wrapped at the same time so that the wrapping needs to be performed only once. This latter method provides multiple layers of protection of surgical instruments from contamination and saves time since wrapping is done only once. Multiple layers are still common practice due to the rigors of handling within the facility even though the barrier efficacy of a single sheet of wrap has improved over the years. Written and illustrated procedures for preparation of items to be packaged should be readily available and used by personnel when packaging procedures are performed.
