Are you ready for AAMI ST108?
The Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI) has developed and published a new standard, ANSI/AAMI ST108:2023 – Water for the Processing of Medical Devices. This new standard replaces AAMI TIR34:2014.
ST108 has a strong emphasis on proper water system design, monitoring, testing and maintenance. Unlike TIR34, which offered guidelines around water quality used for medical device reprocessing, ST108 has binding requirements for sterile processing departments. Thus, it is important that you understand this new standard and the effects of water quality on medical device processing.
