    Gamma Irradiation, also known as Gamma Sterilization

    A form of electromagnetic energy characterized by its deep penetration and low-dose rates, Gamma irradiators are powered by Cobalt-60, effectively killing microorganisms throughout the product and its packaging with very little temperature effect and no residues. The amount of radiation received depends on the type of product and its dose requirements. The dosimetric release allows products to be processed, verified, and immediately released for shipment. Our exclusive ExCell® high-precision irradiator delivers precision dosing to within ±10 percent.

    Gamma Irradiation is Best Suited For

    • Single-use medical products
    • Packaged products
    • Food products
    • Cosmetics
    • Tissue-based devices
    • Implantable medical devices (stents, heart valves, orthopedics)
    • Pharmaceutical product and packaging
    • Combination medical devices that may contain a pharmaceutical or biologic
    • Raw materials

    Key Benefits of Gamma Irradiation

    Gamma sterilization technology is very well understood, safe, and easy to validate. It is an effective sterilization method due to its:

    • Sterility Assurance & Treatment Efficacy
      Consistently meets product and regulatory requirements
    • Safety
      Offers proven track record in worker and product safety
    • Flexibility & Versatility
      Effectively sterilizes a wide range of products with different variations in dose requirements, densities, and packaging/box sizes
    • Reliability
      Provides unparalleled reliability and simplicity
    • Precision
      ExCell® Irradiator – For ultra-precision, repeatability, and speed, the ExCell Irradiator can be used in different stages of the product development lifecycle including R&D samples, batches for clinical trials and stability and routine testing, as warranted.
