Sterile designation

Sterile consumables and supplies fit for the rigors of laboratory science

Look for the Thermo Scientific Sterile designation when your lab work requires assurance that products are free of living microorganisms and residual endotoxins (pyrogens) that can negatively affect your science.  Products designated as Sterile have been sterilized using electron beam (E-beam), gamma irradiation or ethylene oxide gas processing to a minimum sterility assurance level (SAL) in accordance with ISO 11137. Additionally, our Sterile designated products are tested to be free of endotoxin contamination using the Limulus Amebocyte Lycate (LAL) gel clot assay according to current FDA regulations and USP 85.  

To receive the Sterile designation, products must meet the following criteria:

 Minimum Sterility Assurance Level (SAL) with ISO 11137
 Endotoxin (pyrogen) free

Additional criteria met:

✓ Made from high quality resins and raw materials
✓ Manufactured in accordance with ISO 9001 and 13485 standards
✓ Low wetting for accurate liquid measurements
✓ High chemical resistance for durability in most routine lab work
✓ High thermal resistance for stability under wide range of temperatures
✓ High centrifugation stability*
✓ High transparency for good visual sample monitoring*
✓ Precisely shaped for outstanding function and critical measurements

*For applicable products only
