The gamma sterilisation process uses Cobalt 60 radiation to kill microorganisms on a variety of different products.
Processing with gamma yields quick turnaround time, easily penetrating packaging and product, and is ideal for many types of materials.
Gamma irradiation is ideal for:
- Sterilisation of single use medical supplies such as syringes, implants, catheters, IV sets, surgical gloves and gauze
- Elimination of microorganisms from pharmaceuticals such as ointments and solutions
- Sterilisation of tissue/biological based products
- Microbial reduction on consumer products
STERIS offers gamma irradiation processing at 12 North American locations.
