AVON, Mass., Aug. 10, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Ranfac Corporation has announced the completion of a successful validation of Steris Corporation as an additional source for Ethelyn Oxide (EO) sterilization services. According to Barry Zimble, Chief Operating Officer at Ranfac, "Having multiple sources of sterilization will add a level of control and an increased sense of reliability."

"What we don't want are bottlenecks, points of slowed movement, in our supply chain," stated Michael Faradie, Ranfac Director of Manufacturing. "This partnership will allow us to produce finished goods at a higher rate, speeding up the entire process and making life easier for everyone."

According to Eric Kreuz, Ranfac Vice President of Quality Assurance and Regulatory Assurance, this validation will positively affect risk management at the company. "This could prove to increase the output by four or five times, meaning that we would no longer have to worry about storage space of unsterilized items," said Kreuz. "Our risk management profile will be improved, directly benefiting our customers."

Ranfac has already begun the process of having products sterilized at Steris' Northborough, MA facility.
