Surfacine is not affected by standard sterilization processes.

Surfacine treated surfaces remain bioactive and inert after exposure to a variety of sterilization methods:

  • Gamma irradiation (2 Mrad)
  • E-beam (25 kGrays)
  • Ethylene Oxide (EtO) treatment
  • Autoclave (wet or dry)
  • Chemical treatment (ethanol/water mixture)
  • UV
