What is cold sterilization?

Cold sterilization may be essential for certain:

  • pharmaceutical products
  • medical devices
  • tissue samples
  • biologics

For products that contain heat-sensitive ingredients and yet require sterilization or bio-reduction treatments, cold sterilization provides protection via low temperature molecular stabilization.
