STERIS Applied Sterilization Technologies (AST) is pleased to announce we have expanded our laboratory services offering with the addition of product validation and testing, package validation and testing, and technical support services. A critical piece of new product development, these services ensure that medical devices perform as expected for the life of the product, while the packaging maintains the sterility of the device until its point of use.
In conjunction with the microbial validation services provided by STERIS Laboratories, the product and packaging services provide a comprehensive portfolio of testing options for the validation of sterile medical devices. Product release to market is further supported by the STERIS AST global network of contract sterilization facilities.
The expanded service offering furthers STERIS’s commitment to providing Customers with a comprehensive offering of medical device testing and technology-neutral contract sterilization services. We are excited to offer packaging and product testing, microbial and analytical testing, and technical support services throughout our global STERIS Laboratories network.
STERIS AST is also expanding existing sterilization and laboratory services capacity at its Tullamore, Ireland site. The facility is in the process of constructing a new laboratory, in addition to the installation of a second E-beam facility, the introduction of vaporized hydrogen peroxide (VHP) processing capability, and the addition of extra ethylene oxide processing capacity.
The addition of the product and packaging testing services, combined with the expansion activities at the STERIS Tullamore site, demonstrate our commitment to the Irish Medtech community and providing both global and local Customers with comprehensive sterilization and laboratory services options.
