    Materials compromised with moisture often develop molds and other microorganisms. As the FDA and other regulatory bodies are becoming more stringent with inspections, various imported products are being tested and detained. Sterigenics’ mold remediation technologies can stop the progression of damage to products and help make the products safe for distribution.

    If you are a restoration company, a government agency, or a corporation, Sterigenics is a critical partner to reduce molds from a variety of products using FDA-approved technologies.

    What is Gamma?

    Gamma is a pure energy characterized by its deep penetration and low-dose rates. Gamma irradiators are powered by Cobalt-60, a radioisotope that kills microorganisms throughout a product. The amount of radiation used on the product depends on the level of contamination.

    What materials can be irradiated to eliminate or decrease mold and yeast spores?

    The FDA-approved radiation-based Gamma solution treats a variety of materials.

    • Documents such as binders and leather covers
    • Toys
    • Clothing
    • Novelties, gift items, and accessories
    • Plastic components (tubes, bottles, etc.)

    Modality for mold remediation

    Radiation-based Gamma processing to eliminate or decrease mold and yeast spores is preferred and widely used in the restoration industry. Products are usually placed in sturdy cardboard boxes, targeting consistent weights. This process is safe and leaves no residuals to the product. The cartons remain intact and the Gamma radiation penetrates the packaging to eliminate mold and yeast spores.
