Sterility makes these products applicable for all applications where the absence of living organisms, like microorganisms, could interfere the positive outcome of an experiment. Especially in clinical or microbiological research where infections have to be avoided, sterile products are of high importance.
Sterility describes an aseptic condition, meaning the absence of living organisms. During sterilization transmissible agents
like fungi, bacteria, or viruses, that can affect e.g. cell culture, food but also standard reactions in molecular
biology, are effectively eliminated. Sterility is achieved by irradiation. Eppendorf ensures a Sterility Assurance Level (SAL)
