Technological breakthrough: RFID controls autoclave temperature during steam sterilisation!

RFID sensor data logger withstands heat and pressure during steam sterilisation

(PresseBox) (Lüneburg, ) Know today what will be important tomorrow!RFID sensor data logger withstands heat and pressure during steam sterilisation.

In steam sterilisation the temperature is raised up to 134 degrees Celsius, and the pressure is increased to three bar over a maximum period of one hour. Every day in hospitals and laboratories millions of instruments are sterilised with heat and pressure. How can checks be made as to whether the temperature is constant over the entire operation time?

In autumn 2016, Microsensys developers will be able to provide the answer with the use of a fully enclosed data logger, raising quality management to a new level. The CEO of Microsensys talks with ‘RFID im Blick’ about other approaches, for example, how the medical industry can benefit from the use of RFID.

RFID for each medical instrument?

Once each hospital instrument is labelled with an RFID transponder, the idea of complete traceability will become viable. Until then, there are still a number of hurdles, as Reinhard Jurisch explains: “Technologically, we are already well positioned today. But while product liability issues are not clarified for subsequent transponder instrument labelling, there will be no universal solution. It would be ideal if the instrument manufacturer always labelled the products with RFID tags during manufacture. Transponder solutions therefore already exist."
