Serialisation is defined as the act or process, physical or chemical that destroys or eliminates all viable microbes including resistant bacteria spores from a fluid or a solid. Despite being stated as an absolute, the action of sterilization is usually stated in terms of probability. Examples of sterilization methods are: steam treatment at 121°C, dry heat at 450°F, flushing with a sterilizing solution such as Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2) or ozone (O3), irradiation, and filtration.
