Packaging begins with the selection of suitable packaging materials and packaging methods. In addition to the packaging method, the sterilization items must be considered. A lot of research has been done on this, and many medical packaging materials can be seen on the market.

Understanding the sterilization method and packaging requirements can help the personnel of the disinfection supply center to make the right decision when selecting packaging materials. Usually the situation faced by the staff of the disinfection supply center is that various packaging materials have been used in the workplace. However, it is precisely because there is no single packaging material suitable for all sterilization methods, so there is still a selection process when it is specifically used.

Only packaging materials specially designed for sterilization and approved by FDA can be used. In addition, for various specific sterilization methods, there are the following basic requirements:

--Pressure steam sterilization packaging materials must be able to withstand the high temperature of 121 ℃ -135 ℃, the discharge of air, the penetration of water vapor and the drying of packaging materials and contents;

--Ethylene oxide sterilization packaging materials must allow the penetration and discharge of ethylene oxide gas (ventilation process);

--Dry heat sterilization packaging materials must withstand a high temperature of 160 ℃ -204 ℃ within 2–3 hours without melting, burning or other reactions;

--Plasma sterilization packaging materials must withstand extreme vacuum, do not absorb sterilization agent, do not affect the sterilization cycle, and treat the sterilized items without damage.

In addition to selecting the correct packaging materials, the staff of the sterilization supply center should also understand how to use the above packaging materials properly to achieve the design goals of sterilant penetration, sterile barrier and aseptic opening of the packaging materials.
