>Hello. We use big plastic trays....

You might put them in a UV cross-linker (e.g. Stratalinker) and blast 
them with UV for an 1/2 hour or so.  Field surgery units have 
sterilizers that use ethylene oxide gas rather than heat.  It is a 
CANCER SUPECT AGENT available from Aldrich Chemical (among others).
