Formaldehyde gas sterilization is a method improved for sterilizing medical and surgical materials that can not tolerate temperature.
Formaldehyde gas sterilizators are the devices produced as an alternative way to the ethylene oxide gas sterilazator devices.
They have the capability of sterilizing at the temperatures of 55 -75 C.
Today, disposable materials used in medicine (syringe, catheter, catgut, sets of blood and serum, disposable surgical clothes etc.) are sterilized through this method.
