The aim of present study was to develop methods of physicochemical and microbiologic analyses to assess a new product ADASPOR (adazone-stabilized periacetic acid), used in the sterilization process as a chemical option applied in ophthalmology services in the "Ramón Pando Ferrer" Institute. As analysis methodology the worldwide standardized standards were followed, described in the American Pharmacopeia (USP XXIII), Cuban, French and American standards. The assessments carried out demonstrated the stability of solution to used dilution and the compatibility with medical devices used for 12 working days in analysis period there was a total reduction of initial number of spores-forming units/mL, as well as the quantification of the number of immersion cycles (380 d/i) carried out during the use period established by manufacturer.
