Portable sterilization of surgical instruments in remote, low resource settings using sterilant generated on-site and decomposed into non-toxic compounds.
The ROSS M1 utilizes a sterilant that is catalytically decomposed into to oxygen and water vapor at the end of the sterilization cycle.
There are many advantages associated with the ROSS M1 process as it does not produce toxic by-products or require high temperatures to inactivate contaminant microorganisms.
Current field sterilizer used by the Special Operations Forces is too cumbersome and unreliable with a large logistics footprint requiring potable water and a power source.
Man-portability, power efficiency, and minimal logistic footprint make the Rugged Ozone Sterilization System M1 (ROSS M1) a perfect candidate for field usage.
