About the webinar
A Sterile Barrier System (SBS) is of primary importance in the medical industry. It is identified as the components of a medical devices’ packaging that minimizes the risk of access of microorganisms to the surgical trays and allows for aseptic presentation of the sterile contents.
A key function of an SBS is in fact to guarantee sterility and maintain the safety of a terminally sterilized medical device throughout the whole supply chain, from production through to the operating room, keeping the final user safe.
Given the key role they play to keep patients safe, SBS are heavily regulated by international standards, must comply to strict requirements and different test methods.
