Sterilization Technologies are the processes used to reduce the growth of all viable life forms such as bacteria, viruses, fungi, and spore forms from the surfaces of equipment, pharmaceuticals, medications, food ingredients, and biological culture medium. Sterilization Technologies are widely used in the medical centers, life sciences, food processing, pharmaceutical, agriculture and cosmetics. Majority of the products in the healthcare facilities and medical device industry are terminally sterilized. There are many types of sterilization methods such as Steam Sterilization, Ethylene Oxide, DepyrogenationDry heat, chemical sterilization, radiation and sterile filtration. While receiving medical treatment in a healthcare facility, patients can be infected by infections present in a hospital. The most common causes for HAI are the urinary tract infections, respiratory pneumonia, surgical site wound infections and skin infections. According to the report published by Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in 2016, about one in 25 hospital has at least one healthcare acquired infection. It also states that in U.S every year around 648,000 people develop infections and around 75,000 people die during hospital stay.
