  4. conduct verification dose experiments on irradiated pieces – (method based on ISO 11737- 2;
  5. interpret the results;
  6. establish the sterilisation dose based on the results. 

Sterilization site validation – β e γ rays

Verification of the ability of the site to sterilize the packaging of medical devices:

  1. spiking: inoculation of relevant strains with a known title on the packaging;
  2. sending the packaging to the site for the sterilization procedure execution;
  3. verification of the effective ability of the sterilization procedure by our laboratories.
