Autoclavable Sensors In Life Critical Applications

What does it mean when saying “Autoclavable Sensors”? Autoclavable devices require compatibility with high heat, moisture and often bleach or other high pH fluids. Medical devices that come in contact with human tissues or fluids are considered to be high-risk devices and they require sterilization so they must undergo autoclave processes after each procedure. Hygenic medical devices that require autoclave operations might include surgical staplers, surgical robots, handheld surgical devices, dental tools, medical examination procedures.
