Coronavirus (COVID-19) Resources

With the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic that is affecting millions of people around the world, Advanced Sterilization Products is committed as a leader in protecting patients and healthcare workers with infection prevention solutions.

We observe the daily progress during these unprecedented moments, staying humble in front of the healthcare professionals who fight with this pandemic every day, under extreme conditions.
Our products are highly involved in disinfection & sterilization practices and our teams are doing what is humanly possible, to make them broadly available where needed. 

We designed this Coronavirus Resource Center to help our EMEA healthcare communities navigate the significant challenges they are facing in this time of great uncertainty.  With important facts and information that is updated, we want to become a resource for you in combatting COVID-19 and other infections.

Under what the World Health Organization has called “force majeure”, hospitals are looking for solutions outside the ordinary to protect their medical staff and patients. On the quest to find ways to sterilize single use Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) or other materials currently in shortage due to the extreme demand, our STERRAD® low temperature sterilization systems have been involved in several locally initiated & executed studies.

These resources will be continuously updated, so please check in regularly.
We in ASP stay loyal to our driving value: Protect patients during their most critical moments.

Reprocessing of N95 Masks: Disclaimer

Since US Food and Drug Administration and Dutch National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM) have considered the reprocessing of single use face masks by STERRAD® in the context of COVID-19, ASP has received many urgent requests for guidance.
The objective of the present message is to address these requests while acknowledging the diversity of national situation and not interfering with the local regulation, instruction or recommendations.


>> Before considering the implementation of mask reprocessing you should check if governmental health institutions, national or regional hygiene and sterilization scientific societies made some specific recommendations. Some are driving evaluation or have already expressed opinion.


>> If in addition to local guidance to reprocess mask or be prepared to reprocess them in case of shortage, you may consult the USA COVID-19 Resource Hub. Please note that ASP US guidance refer to N95 respirators.


Although guidance and language are country or region specific the core logic should be common.
ASP remains attentive to all complementary explanation or recommended improvements.
