  • July 1993:Japan Society for Virology advocates “physical seal” as a bio-safety guideline
  • October 2003:Sterilization becomes mandatory for vacuum blood collection tubes and other non-sterile products
    (Up to that time, sterilization was not mandatory for products that were not inserted directly into the body.)
  • 2006:ISO 11607 International Standard on “Packaging for terminally sterilized medical devices” is published

Since the product’s development in 2002, PINNIX Light has ensured sterilization using sealed individual packages, similar to packaging used for injection needles and syringes.

PINNIX Light is also sealed in a plastic bag with a zip lock,
to ensure cleanliness, safety, and peace of mind with every use.
