Title: Set for sterilising medical instruments or appliances

Abstract: The invention relates to a serialization set, in particular for surgical instruments or appliances, consisting of a container and an electronic apparatus (17) for recording at least one serialization parameter. The container includes a valve (11) arranged opposite a wall (7) of said container capable of allowing a sterilizing agent to penetrate, said valve being stressed towards a closed position by elastic means (29) and comprising catching members (15) capable of extending through the wall (7) when a force is exerted on said valve (11) countering the action of the elastic means (29). The electronic apparatus (17), designed to be attached to the container wall (7), comprises means for locking (19, 21) the catching members (15) of the valve (11) and automatic disengaging means (25) for producing the release of these catching members, once the serialization parameters are fulfilled.
