Pre-Market Clearance Granted to SteriTite Container System

March 6, 2000

RIDGEFIELD, NJ-The SteriTite Container System, manufactured by Case Medical, has received 510k pre-market clearance by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The sealed containers sterilize blades and lumens in the STERRAD 100 System and the perforated bottom container can also be used in gas plasma and steam sterilizers. Tested at ASP laboratories, SteriTite Container System is designed to eliminate the need for wrapped sets since most instruments, drills, scopes, and lumens can be placed in the container for sterilization. Test results and other information can be obtained from the President of Case Medical, Allan Frieze, at 888-227-2273, ext. 26.
