In August 2013, the German edition of EN ISO 20857:2013 on the development, validation and control of the sterilisation of medical products with dry heat was published. The Memmert hot air steriliser S range meets the requirements of the standard valid throughout Europe without any restrictions.

The standard in detail describes the steps mandatory for this method, such as calibration, maintenance, product and process definitions as well as acceptance, functional and performance assessment. In the attachment, the admissible means for compliance with the requirements are explained. Furthermore, the new DIN EN ISO 20857:2013 describes the requirements to the process for depyrogenation of heat-resistant glassware, metal equipment and instruments as well as heat-resistant chemicals, waxes and oils with dry heat at the corresponding denaturing effect.

The Memmert hot air steriliser S complies with the requirements to the appliances and installations without restrictions, as safety in compliance with IEC 61010-1 and IEC 61010-2-040, control and documentation of temperature and sterilisation time, alarm on limit violation, detection of a measuring sensor failure, tamper-proof setpoint definitions, control and monitoring of temperature changes, accuracy of 0.5˚C or better, control stability of 1% or better and time control ±1 or better.
