Finland’s Ahlstrom-Munksjö is set to offer its high-performance sterilisation nonwoven wraps US under the globally recognised Reliance brand. The sterile barrier systems offer excellent bacterial barrier thanks to cellulosic fibres that create a tortuous path for excellent sterility maintenance of surgical instruments up to the point of use.
The high-performance sterilisation wraps play a key role in the prevention of hospital-acquired infections, protecting patients’ health. Dextex wetlaid sterilization wraps have a long history of use in the sterilization industry and are well recognised throughout the globe for their reliable performance, the company said in a statement.
Ahlstrom-Munksjö changed the name of its sheeted wetlaid sterilization wrap products manufactured at the medical business plant of Windsor Locks and sold in the US to Reliance Dextex. In addition to sterilization wraps for terminally sterilized medical devices, the Reliance Dextex brand includes overwrap for single use Custom Procedure Trays (CPT) and tray liners for moisture absorption and protection of the tray.
“The Dextex brand joins our current Reliance Solo and Tandem brand of SMS sterilization wraps and reflects one of the most technologically diverse portfolios of sterile barrier systems in the industry. The constant improvement to our products, quality and capabilities are a clear reflection of our commitment of continuous support to our customers and global healthcare,” Lionel Bonte, VP medical business at Ahlstrom-Munksjö said in a statement.
