Dear Karen: E-beam vs Gamma Sterilization Dose

Dear Karen, I have qualified my product for sterilization at a gamma facility, but am interested in transitioning to electron beam. I already know what dose my product needs for gamma sterilization. Is this dose going to be the same for e-beam sterilization? Sincerely, Max Dose (Name changed for privacy. And because I’m a sucker […]

The beam is scanned back and forth to create a curtain of fast electrons, which shower and safely ionize the materials that they strike. There is no […]

Cold Sterilization is an E-BEAM Specialty

Sometimes customers have a special sterilization challenge–and e-beam sterilization provides the solution. For example, I recently worked with a customer whose product needs to stay refrigerated, but not frozen. The product degrades over time, and degrades even faster at higher temperatures. However, it is destroyed if it goes below freezing. E-BEAM cold sterilization with refrigeration […]

Do I have to build a certain pallet load for the e-beam process?

  The quick answer is NO!Unlike other sterilization methods, such as EtO and gamma, the e-beam process unloads pallets and places cases of product onto conveyer carts in a single layer.
