Asepsis is the destruction of pathological organisms after they leave the body. It is the state of being free from disease-causing microorganisms. The term often refers to those applications used to promote or induce asepsis in an operative area of surgery or medicine to prevent infection.

The goal of asepsis is to eliminate contamination, not to achieve sterility. A surgical field is sterile, meaning it is free of all biological contaminants, not just those that cause disease, putrefaction, or fermentation.

Asepsis refers to any procedure that is accomplished under sterile conditions. The procedure assures that only sterile equipment and fluids are utilized during invasive medical and nursing procedures.
