Gamma Ray sterilization uses radiation to sterilize the needles, and typically the only byproduct of this sterilization process is ozone. In comparison, the conventional method for sterilizing needles is with ethylene oxide, which has been classified as a human carcinogen and long-term exposure is known to be harmful to human [...]
The “magnetic” nature of the clip does not affect or enhance sterility itself. The fact that the magnetic clip tightly holds the shafts of the needles between the top and bottom layer of the pouch conveniently reduces airflow and possible contamination of the shafts of the needle. The net effect [...]
