Safty first Th safty of patints is always top priority whthr it coms to strilization procsss or th slction of th most suitabl stril packaging

2 Wipak Mdical Businss Rviw Who could rad th crystal ball? Hikki Wijo, Dirctor Wipak Mdical 2 Th magnitud of th global financial crisis could not b prdictd. Th turbulnc is not ovr yt and w will fac its consquncs for a long tim. Th mdical businss nvironmnt is and will b affctd, although w might b considrd rathr fortunat. Th dmand for mdical supplis continus rasonably stabl, with som xcptions. Halthcar facilitis continu surgical procdurs and oprations; stril instrumnts and supplis ar ndd. Thos ar procssd in strilization dpartmnts in-hous or by th dvic industry and thr is dmand for stril barrir systms. Through th priod of crisis th marktplac has grown vr toughr. Th thm savings in public halthcar is mor rality than vr bfor and no doubt th strss is gtting strongr. Th dp dprssion rsults in lowr tax rvnus to covr costs of halthcar. Evn mor savings ar ndd and public halthcar will suffr, whil lss and lss rsourcs ar availabl for optimal patint car. If public halth srvics dtriorat, th frustratd consumr will look for othr choics. Undoubtdly, this will crat opportunitis for th privat halthcar markt. Th growth of privat halthcar can b sn as a positiv dvlopmnt. This sctor is mor quality and srvic orintd, offring nw possibilitis and opportunitis. In transition to bttr tims Wipak strngthnd its growth ovr th past yars, also within th last 12 months. W hav ntrd nw markts and won nw customrs in our traditional trritoris. W find this most ncouraging achivmnt in today s businss lif. Markt growth attracts nw playrs to ntr th businss and comptition gts hardr. On th othr hand, our customrs ar facing svr challngs in thir businss nvironmnt and ar placing incrasing dmands on thir supplirs. Only strong, global companis that ar offring profssional and flxibl srvics will surviv. Working on tomorrow s improvmnts today W at Wipak ar committd and focusd to b among thos succssful companis. In our HCP product sgmnt w want to bcom th globally lading manufacturr. W xtnd our fforts in making STERIKING th lading brand for strilization dpartmnts, stting nw standards for quality products and srvics. In th mdical industry product sgmnt our goal is to b th prfrrd supplir for mdical dvic industris. W want our customrs to find us a trustworthy and most attractiv partnr for thir packaging nds. Som build up comptition. W build on partnrships Thanks to its vrsatil machin parks and production facilitis Wipak trains to b an innovativ pionr on th chosn product markts and sgmnts. W aim at clos and proactiv partnrship with our customrs. Wipak incrass its global prsnc offring locally adaptd srvics. W ar xpanding our ntwork of sals and markting offics. W work for optimization of logistic mattrs for th bnfit of our customrs. Wipak forcs for growth, kping in mind sustainabl valus for businss. Adapting to vr changing dmands will b vidnt for survivors Th markt will not offr asy businss. Growth is surly attractiv, but conomic facts will kp th businss nvironmnt vry challnging. W bliv that succss rquirs mor than just th lowst pric stting. A succssful company nds to provid to its customrs 1st class srvics, rliabl quality and product prformanc, and guarantd flxibl supplis undr all circumstancs. For 40 yars w hav mad it our businss to focus on mdical and food packaging and to dlivr xcllnt rsults. Our stability allows us to continu strnthning our position as partnrs for packging.

Th window bags ar mad of a highly rsistant polythyln film with a spcial coatd Tyvk window ara which acts as a brathabl mmbran. Th strilization agnt can pntrat into th window bag through th prmabl window, in contrast to thos bags that ar mad purly from plastics film, which impd th transmission of strilization gass. Our standard rang of window bags offrs twlv sizs. W hav xtndd th varity to customizd dimnsions or bags with spcific film combinations. Th multi-layr film can b supplid, for xampl, with a polyamid (nylon) innr layr for nhancd stability and xtra punctur rsistanc. Wipak gladly adviss you with th most optimal siz of brathabl Tyvk window for a succssful transmission of thyln oxid during strilization procss. Th spcially coatd Tyvk nsurs a consistntly sald packag, with clan pl pro- prtis and allows an asptic opning of th pack. Limiting th amount of Tyvk matrial to a strip is an conomic way to cut packaging cost without compromising its quality. Striking Window bags provid an xcllnt microbiological barrir and protction against contamination during transport, storag and subsqunt handling in hospitals or othr facilitis.

7 Halth Car Products Striking SC250 Sal Control Uniqu patntd documntation systm Sal Control offrs a practical documntation systm for daily hat-salr validation and sal quality tst. This concpt is patntd and only availabl from Wipak. Training Prsntation on DVD Cntralizd stril supply procss in hospitals Th strilization packag has to b sald against ingrss of micro-organisms. Two typs of hat salrs ar usd for closing strilization pouchs: rotosalrs or impuls units. Th Striking SC250 Sal Control is suitabl for tsting both typs. It is dsignd for improvd usr convninc and th shts ar supplid in practical dispnsr boxs. Practical documntation systm for daily sal quality tst In Octobr 2008 was th grat prmir of th DVD training prsntation during th annual national CSS congrss in Finland. Th prsntation was producd by a highly profssional tam of xprts from hospital practics and from industris. Th sponsoring consortium comprisd of companis rprsnting manufacturrs for strilizrs, watr supplis, washing and claning dvics, dtrgnts and disinfctants, and strilization packaging. Wipak Mdical joind th consortium. Striking Sal Control simulats a pl pouch concpt Striking and othr brands for a hat-salr validation. Pl pouchs ar widly usd for packing mdical dvics in hospitals and industris. Th rcommndd saling tmpraturs ar within a rlativly narrow window ( C). Thicknss and quality of papr affct th sal strngth and its quality. Th SC250 Sal Control is dvlopd for tsting th saling unit prformanc and as such can b usd though Striking products ar not in us. Striking Sal Control simulats a pl pouch concpt Th DVD was aimd to train and to promot good practics in Finnish hospitals and othr halthcar institutions. During this yar Wipak has mad an addd contribution as its stand-alon projct and has organizd various languag vrsion convrtd from th original Finnish prsntation. Th training prsntation offrs a valuabl tool for our partnrs and customrs worldwid to xchang knowldg in this dmanding sgmnt of packaging. 7 Sal Visual Apparanc mans th sal width and its homognous stability throughout th sald surfac. Th rotosalr modl may offr a validation function, but it cannot offr this visual apparanc valuation. Th Striking SC250 Sal Control Sht is dsignd xclusivly for this purpos. It is mad of ESPP film and mdical grad papr and simulats ffctivly th closing procss. Th colord film of th SC sht turns to a darkr shad in th sald aras that provids clar documntation of visual valuation on sal quality. Th shad of a darkr color is rfrncd by pr-sald dgs of th sht. Th sht papr is prprintd with a marking ara for corrctiv actions and authorizd approving signatur. Sal Control is a mor prcis tst mthod than such that involvs placing an xtra tst body btwn th layrs. Th manufacturr of a pl pouch systm is rsponsibl for th quality of th sid sals and th opning sal of such a packag. Th final closing of a packag nds to b a validatd procss, too. That is th rsponsibility of th packr. This applis for both industrial and clinical usrs.

8 Halth Car Products Strilization & Stril Packaging Global practics or standards inconsistnt! Hanna-Kaisa Kyyrönn, Clinical Product Spcialist, Striking Halthcar Products 8 Strility is absolutly ssntial for all surgical procdurs. From strilization procsss to th slction of th most suitabl stril packaging th safty of patints is always top priority. It is amazing and inspiring to rcogniz how th national rgulations, rcommndations and policis diffrntiat in various markts and countris. Hr blow a fw xampls. How to load pl pouchs into an autoclav tray? In Europan countris it has bcom quit an stablishd procdur and a rcommndd practic to load th pouchs vrtically placing thm papr-to papr and plastic-to plastic. In th North Amrican countris, howvr, th rcommndations (US: AAMI ST79 and Canada: csaz314.3) for propr placmnt of papr plastic pouchs ar just th othr way round: papr to plastic and papr to plastic. In both continnts, th diffring mthods ar practicd for yars and yars. This lads us to a conclusion that in pr vacuum autoclaving procsss th packs can b stackd in both ways, mphasizing th importanc of packs bing loosly spacd nsuring complt air rmoval and propr pntration of th strilizing agnt. Diffrnt strilization paramtrs Anothr astonishing diffrnc in practics concrns strilization paramtrs. Minimum strilization xposur tmpratur according to th US AAMI Standards and Rcommndd Practics is in most cass 132 C for 4 minuts. In th Europan norm EN 285 it is spcifid as 134 C for 3,5 minuts or 121 C for 15 minuts. This can b a littl troublsom for manufacturrs whn providing th most suitabl indicators matching th rquirmnts of th strility assuranc programs in th diffrnt countris. Complianc with standards In gnral trms, th Europan norms EN 868 sris ar constructd with mor spcific dtaild product and tsting rquirmnts than th Amrican standards. Th nw updatd vrsions of EN 868 Parts 2-10 wr publishd arlir this yar. Th ISO EN harmonizs all standards but discusss rquirmnts on manu- facturing and product safty rliabilitis only. It dos not stat any concrt product rquirmnts as dos th EN 868 sris. For xampl, th dsign of a pl pouch is dscribd in EN in dtails that cannot b found in th ISO standard. This concluds that on can find varity a of product prformanc qualitis in diffrnt trritoris following diffrnt standards. Striking is doing wll in all continnts and in all uss as it is dsignd and manufacturd to th highst standards dscribd by our long xprinc in making ths products in clos coopration with our partnrs and nd usrs worldwid.

9 Halth Car Products Strilization monitoring Hanna-Kaisa Kyyrönn, Clinical Product Spcialist, Striking Halthcar Products Stam strilization is no doubt th most favord mthod of strilization in hospitals worldwid. All surfacs of packd products and packaging matrials shall b xposd to strilizing conditions; not only th outr surfacs but spcially th intrnal sids. Th wid varity of products to b strilizd in clinical nvironmnts maks th strilization procss vry challnging. Porous loads and Bowi&Dick typ tsting Porous itms, lik linn shts, draps and such txtils pos thir spcific challngs to gt ths fibrous matrials xposd to stam in all thir cornrs, layrs and folds. Instrumnts with cavitis, lik ndoscops with narrow lumn, ar anothr challnging group of products to hav saturizd stam ntring into ths small but long cavitis. Th Bowi & Dick tst was long ago dvlopd for assuring stam pntration in a stack of foldd linn shts. It is intndd that a Bowi and Dick typ tst is prformd ach day aftr th strilizr is hatd up to its oprating tmpratur. If a strilizr was in us for 24 hours nonstop th tst could b prformd whn th probability of a failur in crating th appropriat stam strilization conditions is th gratst. A satisfactory tst will indicat fficint stam pntration, adquat air rmoval and frdom from significant air laks. Hollow instrumnts and Hlix tst Sinc thos tims, txtils ar hardly strilizd in hospitals but instad ar outsourcd to spcializd laundris. Us of all kind of scops and such lumn instrumnts hav grown gratly, thus thr was an indisputabl nd for dvloping a rliabl tst for ths kinds of product loads. Procss challng dvics (PCDs) ar dvlopd for simulating th worst cas scnario in th autoclav loads with hollow instrumnts. PCDs ar idal for routin batch control. For rliabl rsults thy shall b placd in th strilizr and within th load to th most difficult-to striliz location, calld th procss challng location (PCL). Sinc in most cass th PCL can b an assumption only, th us of mor than on PCD could b rasonabl. Strilization fficincy may not rmain constant for all conscutiv cycls during th day. Espcially non condnsabl gass (NCG) may block stam pntration in critical aras of porous loads and hollow dvics. A procss challng dvic, lik Hlix, is usd to dtct th potntial changs of a program by NCG during th day. Th Hlix tst shall b put insid a packag bcaus th packag itslf is incrasing th difficulty of air rmoval and stam pntration. At th WFHSS Confrnc on Strilization and Disinfction in Halth Car Organizations which was hld in Croatia in March 2009 on of major topics was th corrct us of ths procss challng dvics. Th prsntations and discussions pointd out that a Hlix tst and a Bowi and Dick typ tst ar two compltly diffrnt tsts and that ths both ar ncssary for rliabl assuranc of strilization fficincy. Monitoring and control of th strilization procss Th routin monitoring and control of th strilization procss is an important aspct of a comprhnsiv strility assuranc program. Frquncy of us and numbr of chmical indicators pr load or cycl dpnds on national rgulations and rcommndations, or local policis of th institution whr th strilizr is locatd. Onc an indicator product is slctd, it is valuabl for strility assuranc only if it is usd and intrprtd corrctly, and if th usr taks appropriat action in rspons to th rsults. Guidanc and xampls of pass and fail rsponss of indicator changs should b availabl from th manufacturr and clarly undrstood by th usr. Intrnational standard EN ISO Strilization of halth car products Chmical indicators Guidanc for slction, us and intrprtation of rsults is in implmntation in all EU countris sinc March EN ISO provids usrs guidanc on slction of th corrct chmical indicator for thir particular strilization procss and critical paramtrs as wll as guidanc on its appropriat us. Information about th last accssibl locations for th strilizing agnt within th strilizr chambr and loads can b dfind during strilizr s procss validation. W c r a 9
