The Panel on Gamma and Electron Irradiation has recently published a Method for Statistical Process Control of Radiation Sterilisation Facilities. This is part of an ongoing programme of work on the utilisation of measurement uncertainty data and statistical methods. The task of producing...

According to the firm, a growing demand for EtO sterilization, which offers flexibility in product design and composition, prompted the company to expand. The firm also operates an EtO facility in Ireland, four gamma-irradiation plants, and an E-beam sterilization facility. For more information...

The conventional sterilization processes commonly used by medical device manufacturers EtO, steam, gas plasma, and gamma irradiation are proven technologies. By gauging the requirements of their products and doing cost comparisons for various methods, manufacturers settle on a sterilization process...

This article explores those changes and their effects over the past 25 years on the medical device sterilization market. In 1980, EtO was used for nearly 90% of all sterilized devices. At that time, only the largest manufacturers used either gamma or E-beam sterilization. Irradiation contractors were... integrated directly into an existing facility's processing line. The operator works from a remote terminal. Shown here are hamburgers; however, they could easily be replaced with boxes of mail, the machine is the same. The only difference between sterilizing medical equipment, eliminating pathogens in food... an EtO chamber system and controller. It costs less than one-fourth as much as gamma or E-beam equipment and facilities. Sterilization exposure times can range from as short as 3 minutes at 134 C to as long as 3 hours at 101 -111 C, depending upon the bioburden (see Table I). Hospitals use steam...
