BD Sterilization Facilities
Covington and Madison, Georgia
BD’s facilities in Georgia safely sterilizes more than 15 million medical devices each year. From urinary catheters, PICC lines, oncology ports, breast biopsy needles, vascular and ureteral stents, feeding tubes, and more, these lifesaving devices are found in nearly every hospital and healthcare facility in Georgia and around the world.
Ethylene oxide gas (EtO) is the only type of sterilization that can be used for these sensitive medical products. Other sterilization methods (e.g. radiation, steam, chloride dioxide, vaporized hydrogen peroxide) will damage the products or are unable to ensure the required level of sterility.
