Abstract

Tissue-engineering must be either manufactured aseptically or sterilized after processing. To extend protection of medical devices against microbial contamination, various sterilization methods have been suggested. Hydrogen peroxide gas plasma sterilization has been applied in hospitals worldwide for almost a decade. In this study, we investigated the sterilization efficacy of hydrogen peroxide gas plasma sterilizer with porous polyurethane sample. The result is suggested that hydrogen peroxide gas plasma can be applicable to the sterilization of polymer scaffold for tissue engineering materials.
