Spanish term or phrase: esterilizador
context: contract for gamma radiation sterilization.
This is a contract, and I want to know if i can use the word "STERILIZER" FOR THE PERSON OR COMPANY which performs the sterilization. Because "sterilizer" is a machine. IN the text the company was "The Supplier" (el proveEdor), but suddenly they changed and begun to speak about "El Esterilizador" (company). Shall I use "sterilizer"THANK YOU ALL.

sterilization company
Explanation:
Hi MP

I wouldn't use "sterilizer" because at least in the US, for medical contexts, that word does refer to a machine (like the autoclave).

How about "sterilization company"? (if you need tostay away from the shorter "the supplier", that is).
