How do I sterilize respiratory accessories between experiments for human subjects?

Pulmonary function filters (MLA304) and nose clips (MLA1008) are disposable products that should NOT be sterilized. These products are sold for single patient use only.
The MLA1026 mouthpieces are also considered to be single use product by the manufacturer; however, they can be sterilized using the following method:


  • Clean the mouthpiece with warm tap water and a mild dishwashing detergent.
  • After washing and rinsing the mouthpiece, sterilize it with any commonly available baby bottle sterilizer on the consumer market.
