Gamma IrradiationFor more than 50 years, Gamma Irradiation has provided a safe and cost-effective methodology for the sterilization of single-use medical products, cosmetics, spices and packaging.
What it is:
A form of pure energy characterized by its deep penetration and low dose rates. Gamma irradiators are powered by Cobalt-60, effectively killing microorganisms throughout the product and its packaging with very little temperature effect and no residues. The amount of radiation received depends on the type of product and its dose requirements. Dosimetric release allows products to be processed, verified and immediately released for shipment. Our exclusive ExCell high-precision irradiator delivers precision dosing to within ±10 percent.
Best Suited For:
> Single-use medical products
> Packaged products
> Food products
> Tissue-based devices
> Implantable medical devices (stents, heart valves, orthopedics)
> Combination medical devices that may contain a pharmaceutical or biologic
> Raw materials
