Germicides, Gas, Chlorine Dioxide

Definition : Gas germicides, whose main component is chlorine dioxide that are intended for killing and/or total inactivation (i.e., sterilization) of microorganisms (i.e., viruses, bacteria, fungi, and their spores). These gas germicides typically consist of a synthetic, green-yellowish gas with a chlorine-like odor. They are used in sterilizing units that include a closed chamber in which the time, temperature, and/or concentration of the germicide during the sterilization process are controlled. The germicide is toxic and must be eliminated after the sterilization cycle is complete. Chlorine dioxide germicides are mainly used to sterilize surgical instruments, reusable supplies, and pharmaceutical products that cannot support conventional high temperature sterilization (e.g., devices that contain plastic or rubber components); the germicide is usually manufactured on site and rarely stored as a gas, because it is explosive under pressure.
