Molds, fungi, and other microorganisms are so pervasive in the air and on human and indoor surfaces, they are hard to avoid. Thus, packaging materials are often contaminated by the time they reach the filling part of your process. This becomes a problem when packaging—caps, lids, or poly liners—has direct contact with the products going into the packages. The resulting contamination can lead to the product being unsafe to distribute or sell, reduce shelf life, create spoilage, and possibly lead to product recalls.
We understand and are experienced in packaging microbial reduction and sterilization services across the food and drink industry, medical device industry, pharmaceutical industry, and cosmetic industry.
Radiation-based Gamma for packaging
Radiation-based Gamma for microbial reduction and sterilization of packages is FDA-approved. Gamma irradiation is a non-invasive process that penetrates various types of packaging, reaches all microorganisms regardless of the intricacies of the package, and can be scaled to your microbial-reduction goals. The process is safe and effective. Post-irradiation, there are no residuals left on the product.
Gamma can be used to treat a variety of packaging.
- Dairy cartons
- Bulk liquid liners
- Plastic beverage containers
- Bottles, lids, and caps
- Liquid packaging
