Cisa Group is a world player in hospital sterilization processes for healthcare infection control.
Design, manufacture and supply of Central Sterilizing Services Departments (CSSDs o SPDs) in hospitals all over the world.
Advanced thermal disinfection and sterilization solutions and technologies for reusable medical devices (RMDs) and surgical instruments for healthcare and clinical applications of all sizes.
Sterilisation plays a leading role in the process of hospital infection prevention and control.
Sterilisation of surgical instruments is one of the main steps in the process of preventing or stopping the spread of infections in healthcare settings (care-associated infections – CAI).
Despite considerable progress in the prevention and control of CAIs, they still represent an important risk factor, especially for patients undergoing invasive diagnostic and/or therapeutic procedures, but also for healthcare workers or care staff.
The maintenance, sterilisation and storage of medical and surgical equipment are still good practices for fighting pathogens in hospitals.

Hospital sterilisation is a procedure that results in the (almost) total destruction of any microbial form, i.e. the killing of all pathogenic microorganisms from the treated surface.
The maintenance, sterilisation and storage of medical and surgical equipment still constitute the best practice for fighting pathogens in hospitals.
Most of the reusable material (reusable medical devices RMD) is mainly sterilised inside the hospital’s central sterilisation department (CSSD): a dedicated environment that meets specific requirements in terms of structural, engineering technological, environmental and organisational characteristics established precisely to limit the propagation of health risks.
Sterilisation is a process consisting of individual phases (from decontamination to use): each step is relevant, not performing it or performing it incorrectly compromises the entire process and exposes the patient, the operator and the facility to potential hazards.
It is important to use adequate and effective technologies, in line with the reference standards.
