Activation Testing in X-ray Irradiation Processing

STERIS Director of Radiation Technology, Deepak Patil discusses how and why activation testing is conducted on healthcare products irradiated with electrons greater than 10 MeV or an energy level for electrons used to generate X-rays exceeds 5 MeV.

Screening, measurement, or qualitative and quantitative analysis are the two approaches of methodology used for activation assessment.
