This webinar will discuss in detail the methods of sterilization to be used on medical devices and pharmaceutical products including advantages and disadvantages of each method. Also attendees will understand the regulations pertaining to sterilization of products that will help to decide with method to use for their product. Validation of each sterilization method will be discussed and how best to prove to a regulatory body the products being treated are considered sterile.
Pharmaceutical products and medical devices are required to be sterile to be used in patients. Sterilization of these crucial products can be done in several ways depending on the characteristics of the product being sterilized. There are four typical ways a product can be sterilized. These are sterilization by Ethylene Oxide, Gamma irradiation, Steam and Pressure, and filtration. Knowing the characteristics of your product will determine what method will be used. This webinar will go over the four methods of sterilization and why one method would be chosen over the other.Areas Covered in the Webinar:

Medical devices and Pharmaceutical products are used by patients who may be compromised in terms of developing an infection if an opportunistic microorganism is introduced into the patient’s body. Sterilizing pharmaceutical products and medical devices prevents this from occurring, by using various methods (heat, pressure, radiation, etc.) to destroy the microorganisms. In order for a medical device or pharmaceutical product to be approved there must be an assurance of its sterility.
