The sterilization mechanism of HMTS is for the followings; hydrogen peroxide is vaporized and transferred to a vacuum container where medical equipment is placed for sterilization. Then, a strong penetration force pushes the hydrogen peroxide vapor through the pouch and into the medical equipment.
The vapor, then, undergoes a surface oxidizing reaction with microbes on the medical equipment. The mechanism of this reaction is similar to that of skin aging process. During the surface oxidizing reaction between the hydrogen peroxide vapor and microbes, the membrane surrounding the spore is destroyed and the spore is ultimately killed as the result.
