Radiation Technology Transfer For Sterilization Processing

Our TechTalk on radiation technology transfer, presented by Betty Howard, Senior Radiation Sterilization Manager at STERIS Applied Sterilization Technologies, discusses the transferral of sterilization processing modalities between gamma irradiation, E-beam irradiation and X-ray irradiation.

This webinar examines the similarities and differences of these sterilization technologies, as well as considerations for transfer between modalities.

Radiation Technology Transfer Webinar Overview

  • Similarities:
    • Ionizing radiation sources – dose given by secondary electrons
    • Microbiological effectiveness
    • Regulatory
  • Differences:
    • Energy
    • Penetration – Electrons – Photons
    • Dose rate
    • Maximal temperature achieved during process
    • Exposure time
  • Transfer Activities
    • Minimum dose
    • Maximum dose
    • Activation
    • Routine process PQ
