Converting to gamma-radiation sterilization: an overview for medical device manufacturers

Converting to gamma-radiation sterilization: an overview for medical device manufacturers

Medical Device Technology 4(4): 18-22

ISSN/ISBN: 1048-6690

PMID: 10148573

Gamma radiation is becoming increasingly popular as a method of sterilizing disposable medical devices. The conversion from ethylene oxide sterilization to gamma radiation may involve redesigning products and packaging, and establishing a new method of sterilization. However, the conversion process can be regarded as an opportunity to enhance product design, improve processes, and reduce costs. In this article, the authors explain how conversion can be manageably achieved by providing a step-by-step conversion programme.
