Since 1998, C.G. Laboratories, Inc. has been a leader in the decontamination of medical devices. We offer decontamination of your used medical devices (including cadaver trays) or other products that have been contaminated and potentially exposed to pathogens. In our decontamination lab, used medical devices (including paperwork) are decontaminated so that everything returned to our customers is safe. The medical device can be rendered safe by the use of:

  • Ethylene Oxide Decontamination
  • Steam Decontamination
  • Gamma Radiation Decontamination
  • Liquids Decontamination
  • Custom Decontamination

In addition, we maintain a validated Tracking Software System that monitors each shipment from the moment it arrives until it leaves our facility.

Finally, C. G. Laboratories, Inc. caters to our customer. Most importantly, we provide fast turnaround times and custom requirements for decontamination.

There are many reasons for Decontamination.

One of the most frequent we find is as follows:

The Situation

A device has malfunctioned in the field thus causing a customer complaint. An analyst needs to investigate the possible failure of this medical device. The device is contaminated and has the possibility of pathogens on it. Therefore, the medical device requires decontamination before the analyst tests it.

The Problem

  • There are several issues that can possibly arise from performing decontamination in-house.
  • Equipment/ facilities necessary to handle contaminated devices is costly. (For instance, biohazard safety cabinet, autoclave, ethylene oxide sterilizer)
  • Current personnel doesn’t have the expertise or training to properly decontaminate these devices.
  • Resources to validate decontamination processes are lacking. (Such as time, equipment, expertise).
  • Decontamination causes inconvenience in your laboratory.
  • Different types of decontamination are needed for different devices. It’s complicated to keep all those resources on hand.

In conclusion, in-house decontamination just isn’t cost effective.

The Solution

Send all your contaminated medical devices to C. G. Laboratories, Inc. We have all the equipment necessary for decontaminating your medical devices for instance autoclaves, ethylene oxide sterilizers, and biohazard safety cabinets.

All of your contaminated devices can be shipped directly from the hospital or sales representative to C. G. Laboratories, Inc. After that, they are returned to your facility decontaminated. Therefore, products never arrive at your manufacturing facility contaminated.
