Read Frequently Asked Questions

This Sterilization training will provide valuable information to companies that design products for terminal sterilization with ethylene oxide.

R&D Engineers have the responsibility of the development of medical devices or healthcare products that will be sterilized by ethylene oxide (EO), however they may not have an adequate understanding of the sterilization process and its impact to the functionality of the product and its package. This presentation will provide information that can be used by R&D Engineers to aid them in the selection of materials, design characteristics and appropriate packaging by providing them with a basic knowledge of what is involved in the process of EO sterilization. It will also provide guidance on how the EO sterilization process can be changed to address specific product needs such as temperature or moisture sensitivity.

Areas Covered in the seminar:

  • Review of the properties of ethylene oxide.
  • Lethality of ethylene oxide.
  • Basics of EO sterilization.
  • Interrelationship of the parameters of EO sterilization.
  • Introduction into product considerations.
  • Material related issues.
  • Basic aspects of EO residuals.
  • What aspects of product design impact EO sterilization.
  • What aspects of EO sterilization impact the product.
  • How changes to the materials, product, package, and manufacturing process impact EO sterilization.
  • What testing may be required for changes.

Who will benefit:

This webinar will provide valuable information to companies that design products for terminal sterilization with ethylene oxide.

  • Personnel with the responsibility for product design and development
  • R&D Engineers
  • Product Managers
  • Packaging Engineers
  • Quality Engineers
