Abstract

This study challenges the six-hour recommendation for reprocessing sterilisable medical equipment. We investigate whether an increase in residual protein content is present proportional to holding time before reprocessing is initiated, and whether an increase in corrosion is present on surgical scissors proportional to holding time before reprocessing is initiated.
