Read Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should You Attend:

Radiation Sterilization is one of the most prevalent forms of terminal sterilization for medical devices. It has a number of benefits over ethylene oxide sterilization and continues to grow every year in application as more pressure is applied by the EPA to consider alternate forms of sterilization to ethylene oxide. At the heart of a radiation sterilization program is the dose audit that demonstrates the continued efficacy of the process for sterilizing the medical devices first validated during the dose establishment or dose substantiation experiment performed during the validation. A well-considered dose audit program allows companies to effectively manage radiation sterilization for a wide variety of products with both Quality and Operations benefitting from the design of the dose audit program. A poorly designed dose audit program will cause constant questions to arise about the sterilization program and the team who manages it.

  • Preparing for dose audits
    • Scheduling dose audits with Production, the Sterilization Processor, and the Micro Lab.
