In June 2017, Advanced Sterilization Products (ASP), Ethicon, Inc. received the USFDA clearance for its 30-minute STERRAD VELOCITY BI system. The system has reduced the result time from several hours to 30 minutes, and this new enhancement to the company's complete sterile ecosystem gives hospitals the opportunity to raise their standard of care by running a BI in every cycle, every day. It minimizes the need for manual documentation and thereby reducing the potential for human error.

Some of the other key players operating in the sterilization technology market include STERIS plc, Getinge AB, Belimed AG, Cantel Medical Corp., MATACHANA GROUP, Anderson Products, Inc., B. Braun Melsungen AG, 3M Company, and Sterigenics International, LLC.
