STERIS AST Radiation Technology Center Service Offering
Presented by Daniel Howell, RTC & UK Labs Operations Manager, and Joe Hird, Plant Manager II at Libertyville RTC.
From Min & Max Dose validations to Research and Development, this TechTalk will outline how our TechTeam supports Customers in transferring, designing and executing these requirements at our Radiation Technology Centers (RTCs), as per ISO 11137. In addition, we will discuss how the RTCs provide a state-of-the-art streamlined service through, unique equipment capabilities, bespoke processing methodologies, and the expertise of our people.

Establishing Specification Limits for Ethylene Oxide Sterilization
Presented by Keith Beaumont, Validation Manager, Thorne, UK, and Carrie Clark, Senior Director, Gas Technology & Labs.
After successfully qualifying an EO process, it is important to establish a routine specification for the critical process variables that will be monitored and recorded to support the release of routine EO processes. This TechTalk will outline the key parameters that need to be monitored and recorded, together with guidance on setting reasonable tolerances for these parameters to avoid unnecessary process deviations. Consideration will be given to the natural variation in these parameters during the many stages of an EO process, along with the importance of appropriate use of significant digits in process specifications and recorded values.

Using Uncertainty in Radiation Processing to establish Process Target Dose
(Wednesday 16 June) Presented by Herve Michel, Director, Radiation Technology EMEAAPAC & Deepak Patil, Senior Director, Radiation Technology.
This Tech Talk will explain how to combine information on dose measurement uncertainty and process variability in order to generate a routine process target dose as explained in ISO/TS 11137-4:2020.

Parametric Release for Ethylene Oxide Sterilization
(Wednesday 23 June) Presented by Niel de Jager, Technical Supervisor Validations, Venlo, Netherlands, and Ken Gordon, Principal Scientist, Spartanburg, SC, USA.
Whether qualifying an EO process for routine release by traditional BI or by parametric release, much of the validation process and data required for routine release are the same. This TechTalk will outline the additional aspects that need to be considered when validating an EO process for parametric release and the additional parameters that need to be monitored and recorded for the routine release of product based on process parameters alone.
