Disinfection services are known as a way to destroy unwanted microorganisms in the environment, disinfection services use physical or chemical methods to destroy spores, microbes and viruses. Sterilization refers to any process that removes, destroys, or inactivates all forms of life (especially microorganisms such as fungi, bacteria, spores, and unicellular eukaryotic organisms). Sterilization can be done by a variety of means, including heat, chemicals, radiation, high pressure, and filtration, sterilization differs from sterilization, sanitization, and pasteurization in that methods reduce rather than destroy all forms of life and biological elements. Sterilization services serve as an ideal method to prevent the growth of microorganisms, various types of sterilization services include ethylene oxide sterilization, gamma sterilization and e-beam sterilization. In type, ethylene oxide is a low-temperature gas process used for sterilization of various healthcare products, such as single-use medical devices. Ethylene oxide gas is the most common way to sterilize medical equipment, a safe, tightly controlled, and highly regulated process that is critical to preventing infection and ensuring safe surgical and medical treatment for patients. Gamma radiation is a physical/chemical means of disinfection, as it kills bacteria by breaking bacterial DNA, preventing the passage of gamma rays through bacterial fission energy equipment, disrupting pathogens that cause contamination. The basic principle of steam sterilization, as accomplished in an autoclave, is to directly steam each item at the required temperature and pressure for a specific time. E-beam sterilization is a safe, effective and efficient processing technology used to sterilize a wide variety of disposable medical devices, and e-beam processing of pharmaceuticals is the most cost-effective method for low to medium density materials. Increasing number of surgical procedures, rising incidence of hospital-acquired, increasing prevalence of chronic diseases and rapid technological advancements are the major factors expected to drive the growth of the market globally.
