\"Liquid sterilization: If the item cannot withstand high temperatures and is immersible (endoscopes fit in this category) it is possible to use a process such as the Steris System 1® or any other liquid sterilization system that has a proven record of effectiveness and safety. These systems work especially well for lumened instruments, since they force the liquid sterilant through the cannulas. This process is more expensive and somewhat less effective than steam, and it’s not possible to package the item prior to sterilization.\"
